The NHS- Are we putting too much pressure on it?

As we all know, the NHS has a vital part to play due to Covid-19. Here's a question I would like you to think about; Are we putting too much pressure on the NHS? I'm going to be giving you my opinion so feel free to disagree with me.

Are we putting too much pressure on the NHS?

In my opinion, we're putting way to much pressure on the NHS. This is because the choises that people make are destroying their bodies. There for, making them pay unesessary visits to the GP. An example of this is when people do drugs, such as drinking. By drinking we are destroying our liver, causing people to have surgerys, transplants and so on. This would mean that many young adults would have to go to hospitals, creating less space for valnerable people.

My second reason is that eating unhealthy can cause harm to our bodies. A few examples are obesity and diabities. This would also caues us to pay unesessary visits to the GP as we would need to have constant checkups. Because of all the fast food joints, many people have trouble resisting eating it. It may be unhealthy but having a little bit could help stop the problem.

My final reason is that many people have been taken to the hospitals due to knife crime. Because many people have been carrying knives around, young children have become scared and started carrying knives around as well so they can protect themselves. The more people carry knives around with them, the more people have to go to the hospital.

      It is a challenge for the NHS to juggle both patients with coronavirus, and those who have other illnesses and injuries. We are sure they are doing the best they can in such a difficult situation.

    Hi original_significance. I can see your point about the UK public potentially overloading the NHS. What do you think people at home could do to reduce any pressure on the NHS, particularly in the areas that you mentioned in the original post?

    Secondly, do you think that the government is doing anything to reduce the burden on the NHS? Have there been any recent laws that have been put in place to help with this?

    Do you think the government could do something else to help the burden, whilst still keeping the UK public happy?
