Could knowing the price of NHS treatments help patients grasp their true value?


In my experience of informing patients of the costs, most of them become offended that it had been mentioned at all. Having worked in Canada in the past, the only thing that will make patients become aware of the cost is if they have to pay upfront for the full cost and then claim most of the money back from the government.
