Such Analysis and Studies have been making rounds every now and then and there is nothing new in it. Every time a fresh analysis is carried out, it givess result which say that the already painful and troubling waiting time has further increased. But what can really be done for reducing it? It seems, one way to reduce the waiting time is to curtail the number of patients visiting the Infirmaries and the A&E Units. How: can the patients be asked NOT to visit these Units. No, that would be foolhardy. Then what is the way out. It is a fact that persons with simple ailments such as a bout of a couple of sneezes or a troubling mild head ache simple rush to the Medical Units or the A&Es, feeling that they should get immediate medical attention. If, somehow, the number of patients visiting these Units can be reduced, it will automatically take away the burden from the Medical Staff and also result in lesser waiting times. One way appears to be to levy a negligent fees of say 25 pence to a pound for each visit. This will surely deter persons from rushing to the Medical Units for simple maladies, which can be treated at home or which will pass away after an hour or two.
