Oh great, another brilliant but completely unworkable idea


Value yourselves, €50 in Ireland for an appointment, approx £150-200 for a private home visit in UK if you google it etc etc. Let's see how much we really are worth for every consultation, taking responsibility for a result, actioning a letter, writing a report with your signature on it etc and then work out how to pay of it. If it is another £150 billion per year needed then let's decide how much responsibility the public will suddenly have to take for a 5 second cough or how the "all you can eat NHS" is going to continue to service everyone's WANTS.
