Does the NHS ask to much of the government?

the NHS is a huge, and popular, hospital business (as most of us know) but when they give us all free health care, will this put to much preasure on the government, especially with the current affairs going on aswell, -coronavirus-.

I think that the NHS should ask less of the government and try and earn more money with donations and private apointments.Furthermore, this means that the NHS should become more indipendent and they should not use the government as a simple money scheme for their business. But I dont think this means that the government should give no money tho the NHS i just think that the NHS should earn more money themselves.

In conclusion, this all shows that the NHS should use less of the governments money and earn some more money themselves.

    On the one hand, some people think that the NHS does ask a lot from the government. This is because the NHS need a lot of money from the government because they need to treat the patients in the best possible way. This may even sometimes mean to buy a medicine for over £900 for about ten doses of the medication needed. Each hospital gets a certain amount of money each month depending on how big they are and how much they do for the country. This leads to some difficult decision making for everyone especially the smaller organisations. This could be like whether they stay open for business or not and how much of each medication or tool they decide to buy.
    On the other hand, other people think that the NHS don't ask too much from the government because what they need they need and its for our benefit as a country so especially at a time like this we all need to pull together and appreciate what the NHS do for us and to respect that they need a lot of money for the resources they need to buy for the patients. The sooner we realise this the better because we are putting a lot of pressure onto the NHS and they are just trying to do the right thing by everyone!
    To conclude, I think that the NHS don't ask for a lot from the government. This is because they are good people and need what they need to help our country strive. Especially in todays day and age. That's all from me,

      Good reasons given on both sides. Can you give an example of the type of difficult decisions you mention?

    Yes, I thought that it would be difficult to decide whether to stay open or not when they are running low on stuff like money and recourses that are key to a good hospital or doctors surgery. I also thought it would be hard to decide which medicines that they need the most and which ones that they are willing to sacrifice to help the people in need the most.
