Health Services

The Health Service will be even more stretched with an aging population in the future - charge people to see the Doctor. Many people simply go for a chat. Should be encouraged to see pharmacist instead where possible.

Doctors should not prescribe expensive medicines that can be purchased at pharmacies.

Charge £5 per prescription. Many people do not even take the medication prescribed to them.

Set a date after which people who are morbidly obese, smoke or drink achohol excessively or any combination of the above will not automatically receive services on the NHS especially where that have not made any contributions.

Ensure that expensive hospital beds are not taken up by people who cannot manage at home and put more emphasis on families to take responsibility for relatives not the state.

Tax incentives for housing elderly relatives in a granny flat and therby not taking up valuable NHS or state resources or local authority housing.
