Avoidable overnight stays cost NHS £330m a year


some times there are a lot of time wasters in the A&E. People get admitted for uneccessary reasons, a twist in ankle, hurt their wrist and old elderly who are not coping well because they are refusing to eat. Honestly, what they need is a nursing home not A&E, they come in and refuse dietician and even hospital food despite being encouraged so many times. So if patient refuses what can we do? As the service is free, they come in and out as they like. I support having to pay for healthcare fees! If people are too poor or stingy to pay it then There should be a cheap pay list where anybody admitted must pay xx amount of fee.
