NHS users should pay £10 a month, says former health minister


Before we charge UK residents. How about ensuring people from abroad pay for any care given when they are not residents of the UK. Currently, hospitals and community services have a 'duty of care' to all who require medical care and once the care is complete the patient disappears back home and the bill for care remains unpaid. Sort this first then reassess.
