A universal basic income could free GPs to focus on their real job

Free us from the tyranny of 'eligibility'! UBI is actually more free than many socialist policies, as it refuses to empower the state to 'judge' who should receive benefits. It is not 'progressive' but for many that is actually a good thing! Consider funding it partly through a Land Value Tax (tax on unimproved land value / LVT) to mitigate the wealth destroying effects of tax on consumption or production.
