Prime minister dismisses Jeremy Hunt suggestion that patients may face charges to encourage greater responsibility for use of NHS resources
Downing Street has dismissed a suggestion by the health secretary, Jeremy Hunt, that patients who miss NHS appointments could be charged to ensure they take greater responsibility for the use of limited resources.
A spokeswoman for David Cameron said there was “no intention” to charge people if they missed appointments, after Hunt said he was interested in the idea in principle even though it could be difficult to enforce.
