A trust of Britain's National Health Service (NHS) has announced it will refuse medical service to individuals who exhibit racist or sexist behavior.

On its website, the North Bristol NHS Trust stipulated patients will receive a "yellow card" of sorts and then a "red card" which would withdraw treatment "as soon as is safe." This includes not "Threatening and offensive language," but also "racist or sexist language, gestures or behaviour."
