MPs to debate bill allowing GPs to charge patients for appointments


Most countries in the world have co-payment or an insurance based system. It works very well for patients (better services) and doctors (better pay and conditions). It's the blind faith that the NHS funding system is the best that scuppers healthy sensible debate in the medical profession. "Top" GPs saying its "clearly not right" frankly just don't understand how other health system operate in a far superior way to the NHS.
