Should We Contribute More to the NHS?
My last topic 'Failing NHS' got me thinking what can we do to help/save it. I know many people object to paying over what we give in taxes but what if we lose it?
OAPs, children and those on benefits should be exempt but I truly feel those who can should donate what they can afford to boost the service.
I would be happy to stick a fiver in a donation box in my doctor's surgery so they could buy up to date equipment.
Same if I went to casualty. I am lucky that £10 or £20 would not leave me broke and again the money could pay for an extra member of staff or equipment over a year.
Or how about one night a year televised charity event or money from the lottery?
I know we shouldn't have to but should we let it collapse in order to stick to a principal?
