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


I find it deeply concerning that there is talk of charging anything for access to any service provided under the NHS which is supposed to be FREE at the point of contact. This would be the thin end of the wedge, leading to charging for A&E attendance, referrals to Consultants and other parts of the NHS, all talk of payment from patients for the services of the NHS should be stopped before the current Government get their way and fully install a 2 tier Health Service.
