Don't abuse system
IT HAS long been my unpopular opinion that when something is given "for free" it is likely to be abused.
Such is the case not just with hospital appointments but GP appointments as well.
Recently in France I had to attend a GP surgery and had to pay to see the doctor.
The surgery was empty as clearly people only attended when they were ill.

My prescription was free as there was a genuine problem. The only way to stop this casual attitude towards all medical appointments in Britain is to charge a small fee.
This will clear the surgeries of the whiners and moaners and may be even those who expect a miracle cure for "the sniffles".
The NHS is on the verge of collapse and unless harsh action is taken it will not be there for the genuinely ill.
