Labour want you to pay to go to hospital

The Labour Party wants to charge a £10 per month subscription fee for the NHS and £20 per day for hospital visits on top of the National Insurance we already pay for the NHS.

Former health adviser to Tony Blair, Lord Warner, outlined his proposals in a report for the Reform think tank in March this year. The Labour Party claims that it doesn't agree with Lord Warner but if suggesting that people could choose to pay to be seen sooner in A&E if they are assessed as non-urgent means UKIP wants to charge you to visit your GP as Labour keeps on telling people then a Labour peer saying that you should pay to use the NHS after you've already paid for it through your taxes surely makes it Labour party policy.
