Charges to see GP

16th June 2010

Reform has said charging patients £10 to see their GP could save the NHS £1.6 billion by 2014.

The group said 32,000 hospital beds should be cut, along with a quarter of a million jobs  in order to save £20 billion. Reform said: "As the NHS workforce accounts for over a quarter of all public sector jobs, this would suggest the headcount in the NHS has to fall by about 250,000 jobs across the UK. Pay for doctors and senior managers should be reduced by 10%, which would save an estimated £1.3 billion of the overall technical efficiency savings."
