robin..please patients here are often spending money on the prescription charge that many cannot afford also it is factually wrong to say the nhs is inefficient the issue is underfunding and massive waste by political interference from both parties and their serially insane schemery..pfi/internal market/outsourcing etc etc..all of which have been criminally wasteful catastrophes internal market alone is reckoned to waste 10 billion plus a year with minimal advantages--before the cost of fragmentation and dumbing down of staff due to private outsourcers short termism loss leading to get contracts. I do agree that there needs to be more of an incentive for people to look after thier health--but in the usa their fantastically wasteful and awful health 'care' private industry provides massive incentives it would seem to do so to save money..yet there are millions with no care and more who bankrupt themselves to pay for care. there is nothing whatever wrong with the nhs concept..noble and efficient..it is the *ucking idiot politicians and ideologues who have ruined it. we must return to a clinician led integrated service..that is the only way any nation can possibly afford health care now and in the future
