Plan mooted for patients to pay fee for appointments

There will always be people with more money than sense who will go to the GP with trivial complaints even if it costs them £10 or £100.

Charging the poor is contrary to the principles of the NHS. To emulate the Australian system would mean not having a national health service and paying up to 150 dollars for a simple blood test.

I hope I never need the services of David Jones because I cannot afford him.
