^ and they throw their paracetamol in the bin after seeing GP!!! I know a lot of them. Thats our money too people in the uk are so pampered, we had a patient whos house was refubishing too and their family requested patient to stay for a few more days when she was clearly fit to leave. Obviosuly if patient cant get access to house by uk all trust policies we have to keep them in. Beds are for sick patients not for any people who feel like coming in and out Thats why Uk is a very very very attractive country to poor people esp in eastern europen, asian countries and african countries cos healthcare is free, u get paid for being poor, u get a flat. house, having more and more babies is not a worry because uk government will support you. What other countries in the world would do that?? Despite uk citizens being very mad at government, the uk gov always does thing in their own way. They forget whos paying tax!! Patients should at least have to pay a few £ to see doctors at A&E. This could also mean that we are paying less tax, keeping the money that we have worked for
