- The right to decent medical treatment should not depend on the size of your wallet. I strongly believe the NHS is our greatest national achievement and can't see the problem in paying more tax to support it.
- Talking of morality, it might help if the serial tax avoiders actually paid their fair share and then even the Tories might stop persecuting the poor and disadvantaged.
- Maybe the answer would be for the cost of such drugs to include a NHS premium that would go some way to deal with the moral argument.
- Wealth does not give you greater rights than someone poor. Equality, please.
- No' to the last question.
- I don't know enough about Britain or the NHS to answer the other questions. Not my business anyway.
- I hate all this, but if push comes to shove, there's nothing more important than your health and if I had to pay more, I would - if the alternative was not having the care I currently get.
- The NHS currently gets away with treating people very badly. The sort of behaviour we wouldn't tolerate in suppliers of services for which we'd pay. This needs to change.
- Private scripts for private patients whose doctors are NOT NHS.
- Let the them do it privately. Alternatively get rid of private practise especially for part-time NHS doctors and create a private practice arm of the NHS where the extra revenue helps underpin the NHS.
- Next you will be doing web-based private consultations of NHS staff, would be a money earner for the country and you would need to travel to Harley Street
- We pay towards opticians/dentists, why not towards Doctor appointments (as per prescriptions) and food at hospitals. A fixed sum for medical procedures (as per dentists)
- Yes there is an option it is called private practice.
