Locked [Politics] NHS bosses in Scotland discuss having wealthy pay for treatment


Recommended Posts


NHS leaders in Scotland have discussed abandoning the founding principles of the service by having the wealthy pay for treatment.

The discussion of a "two-tier" health service is mentioned in draft minutes of a meeting of Scotland's NHS leaders in September.

They also raise the possibility of curtailing some free prescriptions.

Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said the principles of the NHS were "not up for debate".

She acknowledged the "very significant pressure" facing health services worldwide but added that the process to "redesign and reform" would "take place - for as long as I have got anything to do with it - within the confines of these founding principles".
