Probably better than my other NHS money maker which is legalising the sale of recreational drugs, but only through NHS approved and owned outlets (ie so when you buy weed, powders or pills, the NHS makes the profit - based on the fact that the NHS on average obtains substances at 1/35th of the street price) - They could literally price Drug Dealers out of the market (no ones going to be smuggling heroin when they're going to be making a fiver on a gram)
At one time the NHS did have private wards and indeed as you suggest it was a great money spinner. They mainly did simple things that the NHS had long queues for, the NHS concentrating on life threatening conditions. This was long before liposuction and facelifts became popular.

Whether right or wrong I'm sure you can imagine what a politician would make of it today. You can almost hear it now, two tier system, equality, one rule for rich, etc etc.

As for weed there is creeping pressure to legalise it one way or another, in the states now there is the laughable situation were almost anyone that can convince their doctor that they have shoulder pain for instance is allowed cannabis. So yeah legalise and sell as opposed to giving it away free on prescription, it would also break the dealer link to class A drugs for some.

It’s been a great privilege to serve Penrith and The Border for the last ten years, so it is with sadness that I am announcing that I will be standing down at the next election, and that I have also resigned from the Conservative Party.

Hopefully he will stay in politics, would be a great loss if people like him are being forced out by the extremists.

They still do. If a woman has a baby at the hospital here it is 80 if they would like a private room rather than go on the ward, or it was a few years ago.
