Should patients be charged £10 for non-urgent A&E treatment?


Please remember there are out of hours GP services and if people use 111 properly and they are advised to go to A&E they should not be penalised. In Hertfordshire the 111 service is working very well, people need more information in the media and advertised in prime locations to encourage and inform them to use this service. The introduction of clinical navigators in A&E depts.will stream patients to the correct services.
