NHS services have become an all-you-can-eat buffet


Where I work there is a small fee for each script item - people don't stock-pile, there's also a 'gap' payment on-top of the government rebate for a consultation - and GPs can set this at their chosen level - there's definitely less abuse of the system than in the UK - and yes I work in Australia now. I don't think there's any political will to start charging in the NHS, and reduce the free-at-the-point-of abuse culture.
