Think tank calls for NHS charges

November 19, 2013 9:48 am

The Reform think tank has called for the Government to consider extending prescription charges, as well as introducing new charges on visits to NHS GP surgeries and some elements of hospital care. Reform claimed that new charges on a greater range of prescriptions could raise £1.4 billion, charges for GP visits £1.2 billion and hospital care charges £200 million, said the report. The think-tank recommended that any reform should include exemptions for people on low incomes – but not necessarily for all pensioners.
