That idea still wont work as most of my attenders will be in exempted group - >65, <18, chronic disase, unemployed etc etc. The only people who will be paying will be those that work - majority of whom don't tend to DNA as they know it'llbe difficult to get time off to attend again. Far more workable is the credit system- annual attendance allowance of x3 GP visit/year, x1 AED visit/year. Beyond which they will be refused medical treatment unless upfront payment is made or it is immediately life threatening problem.
