The Health Secretary, Andy Burnham, said that “A free at the point of use service is only sustainable if people use it responsibly, and only take out according to their need at any given moment. I think informing people about the costs of services and using them responsibly is something we probably need to take more seriously, so that when people do take out of the NHS, they understand the value of what they are taking out at every level. Perhaps when people get their letter calling them for their treatment, the tariff price on the letter might not be a bad thing, because it then tells people this is the value of the NHS treatment you are receiving.”
Norman Lamb, the Liberal Democrat Health Spokesman, went on to say that “I’ve speculated about the idea of putting the price of drugs on prescriptions so that people can see how much it costs. Awareness about cost I think is something we should consider.”
