Thread: NHS Service in Caithness

    I have always wondered should the NHS be free for everyone. A lot of resources are expended on those that have self-inflicted illnesses - i.e. poor diet, over-drinking, over weight, no exercise, smoking etc. The sort of self-inflicted illnesses this causes takes up a large proportion of the NHS budget. If there were more consequences from these sorts of behaviours such as paying a contribution to treatment costs then perhaps this would encourage better behaviours and allow the free NHS services to be more directed.

    There is no such thing as a free NHS (or lunch for that matter). As well as those with self inflicted illnesses mentioned above, the serially lazy also need to realise that their treatment needs to be paid from somewhere. Lounging around all day watching Jeremy Kyle or breeding does nothing for paying for your treatments.
