  • What the NHS needs is a 'Fair Use' policy

    I second the Copperfield for Health Secretary campaign - its ludicrous to have no demand management tools to combat 'choice' and 'free' at point of delivery. In the old days with open access we could at least fill the car park with staff cars so that those who liked to 'pop in' and check something out couldnt park easily...We need to introduce some charging mechanism to get some perspective back on the real 'cost' of health service delivery and appropriate access.
