GP Visits

Depending on income, a visit to the GP should be chargeable.  Those on benefits or low incomes should be exempt. A visit to a GP in New Zealand costs100 dollars which is non-refundable with no recourse to insurance claims.  Likewise, in France, a visit to a GP is charged.  But, unlike the Isle of Man, visiting a NZ or French GP is a same-day service with much more time given to the patient.

Why the contribution is important

Depending on the charges implemented, this should bring in a few thousand £s which would help the NHS enormously as they are so strapped for cash.

    So we pay for these GP's and there staff and premises through our taxes and now you want us to be charged again to visit one, get real please.

    You can't charge people twice.
