Indemnity rises could stop me from working

This idea probably won't go down well with politicians. The UK public gets free health care. (which is a really amazingly good thing). Why not form a contract with the public that in exchange for free health care you will not be able to litigate against the NHS system. Obviously this needs a bit thinking about and perhaps retain compensation for real loss, but most legal case I suspect there is no real harm done and money is the motivating factor. I read somewhere that one of the quickest ways to an early retirement is to be in receipt of employment or medical compensation. People sometimes can become millionaires overnight by this method. It wrong, lawyers are bleeding the system
