It's a nice little debate topic but realistically we would not want to see those without go without, or would we?
My own view is that I would like to see a divide, I work and can't get to see a Doctor, if I'm working I believe I should have priority over a non-working (non critical) person's appointment.
This should also transfer to waiting lists, my damaged wrist should be seen to with more urgency than the damaged wrist of someone who can sit at home all day.
Let's prioritise so the reward is going to the people who work and the people who contribute, I realise that the liberal elite in our social sections of government,a nd the legal profession would never allow this but it would be preferable to the shambles we have today.
Seren if you start to equate sensible debate on one subject with an emotive topic lifted from another you simply move focus back to the good old argument.
