I have started to use Storify as a blogging tool. Here is the link to my first Storify publication:
Theresa May is proposing to charge health visitors for the cost of non-emergency medical cover on the NHS, so with the NHS in a state of terminal decline, perhaps it’s time for the NHS to charge for other specialized services?
Obesity in the UK is taking an increasing share of NHS budgets; surely, that’s not fair to people who take care of their diet and health?
Similarly, alcohol abuse is another enormous cost to the NHS. Why should those who drink alcohol in moderation be penalized? Perhaps, it’s time to also time for the NHS to charge for treatment caused directly by alcohol abuse?
