    I agree. More people need to use chemists as well for minor ailments. I think we all know the NHS can't go on forever as it is with our ageing and massively increasing population. I just hope it's not the Tories that change it because before you know it Branson and his chums will be running the whole show making obscene money out of it. I just hope it's done cross party with consensus and with consultation of the staff. They know best.

    Genuinely intrigued! If you're 79% disability, or not a certain person on low incomes, but skint, how do you see a doctor?

    The NHS should be taken out of politics altogether.

    In response to the paying for free prescriptions post above, I also thought similar until I discovered that the cost to a small country like Wales, of administering / checking / chasing fraudulent usage far outweighed the cost of simply providing the free prescriptions!!

    There are a lot of positives to being a small country like the above example, but the majority are completely lost in the macro economics of the much larger UK to which we're currently tied.

    Certain people on low income? Why not everyone on low income?

    I haven't heard of disability percentage either.

    Sorry I meant there is a cutoff income, which is quite low. The 80% disability test is a qualification for increased social benefits and 100% relief from medical charges, including prescriptions.

    This is a bill from the US for emergency treatment after being bit by a rattlesnake.
    You may as well just die when faced with a bill like that.

    Yeah because insurance companies are renowned for being equitable. They care about one thing only, profit!

    Unless you have a pre existing illness thus rendering you unable to get insurance.

    Look at the bill again.
    The insurance payments are zero..
    And this was emergency treatment.

    No idea.
    The only time I've suffered from snakebite was from drinking it when I was a kid..
    Suffered plenty to be fair.

    The due from insurance is a big fat zero. I'd hate to see you come a cropper in work, and your wet dream of an insurance based UK health service refuse to pay out.
