Charging drunks for A&E treatment?

Recommended Posts

We pay now to keep folk in prison and off the streets, so what's the difference? :unsure:

 

Make them sell off their assets to pay for there own keep in prison. :lol:

Who's to decide the difference between a person who admits to having a few drinks and is swaying and slurring their words - possibly as a result of blood loss or a concussion - and someone who is "drunk"?

 

What objective test is to be used?

 

 

Wouldn't a simple blood or pee test do it?

One's aggressive and wants to fight and the other says 'I love you'

No. Just because you've had a few drinks doesn't mean you aren't having a stroke or aren't suffering from a head injury causing the symptoms. Anyway this is a ridiculous argument. Everyone contributes to the NHS either through direct or indirect taxation. So to ask anyone for further payment for treatment because of their lifestyle is a breach of contract, which would mean that anyone so mistreated would be able to claim back all the payments they had made to date logically. Some can of worms that :blink: :blink:

it is too sensible to charge the drunks

our esteemed civil servants are incapable of devising a means of doing this

they would rather charge hot pies than remove tax altogether and this shows the mentality of the leadership and servants
