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


I think that Dr David Turner's idea should not be easily dismissed. Also, Tony's input is a meaningful one. Fact is that Primary Care should look at optimisation rather than rationalisation and this cannot be done without a greater patients' involvement. Financial costs and their burden on the ability to deliver good services are real and not just "political battle fields. So, yes. I think we should put the idea to a test. Ultimately, what works in Country does not have to necessarily work- somewhere else and vice versa.
