If you abuse the NHS healthcare, you could be taking up somebody's space that really needs it.Too many people abuse the NHS.By abusing the NHS I mean ringing the hospital when you don't need it.When you put strain on the hospital, you may take up somebody's space that really needs it.The NHS should be respected. In America, if somebody couldn't afford to pay for the treatment that they needed they can't have it.This is why we are lucky to the NHS for free and also why we too shouldn't privatise the NHS.Eating healthy is also important.Make sure to eat atleast one vegtable or fruit a day.A healthy diet should contain a lot of vegetables and fruit.Thanks for reading!Enjoy the rest of your day!

      Maybe get a docter from the NHS to come into schools to do an assembly about how to use the NHS properly.

    People should not ring 999 if they have Symptoms of any illnesses because 999 is emergency number you should ring 111 unless it is urgent.We can also help the NHS by not doing prank calls or wasting there time, if you waste the NHS time it can cause people to get even more ill or even people’s lives because the NHS need to be looking after patients.

    I agree, you should only call the NHS if it's an emergency. You should go to prison if you prank call because it can be very serious.

      I agree, practical message because it is really serious if someone prank calls 999.

    It is difficult to educate people on not using the NHS correctly. People can become scared when they or a family member are not well. This is definitely true at the moment with the corona virus.

    I think educating people on the use of the NHS can still be done.
    1.People are watching updates on the news/ radio everyday.
    2. Schools are work home to pupils, they could home information on using the NHS correctly.
    3. Maybe a tv channel could do a documentary showing people using it correctly/ incorrectly.
    4. Lastly newspapers and adverts could showcase what could happen if you use it incorrectly or what could happen if you use it correctly.

    I think that some people do not use the NHS for what it is meant for which is leading to many people that actually need help to not get the help that they need which most of the time is very serious. This is bad because if we waste the NHS at a time like this we might have to start paying for ambulances or the additional care that they need to survive out of our taxes. Just think about it. All our parents, grandparents and any grown-ups having to pay extra money just because people are calling a ambulance for something like a simple splinter. How silly is that? However, it is very hard to find out if they really need it because people may lie about which health conditions they have which could lead to some people believing them because they have no choice. Some can be told almost immediately like if someone says that they have a serious wound, they turn up and there is nothing there, they should get fined because they wasted the NHS's time and money to get a ambulance to them. This is why I think that people are wasting the NHS's money and time. Tell me your ideas below.
    That's all from me,

      But what would happen if it was an accident? For example, maybe a baby messing with the buttons on the phone. What if the baby accidently dials 999?And what if the parents got fined when it wasn't them?

        I like the way you think, amiable_panther, a baby could accidentally dial 999, and I think the fine is about $100 :(

    Well, that is a very fine question you have asked here amiable_panther but I think that there is part of my last comment that you didn't quite understand.

    Well, that is a very fine question you have asked here amiable_panther but I think that there is part of my last comment that you didn't quite understand. For one, it is very unlikely for a baby to be able to get onto a phone these days with passcodes but even if they did, you are missing the point. People out there are making unnecessary calls to the NHS and this is leaving them with no choice other than to go to them because they have asked for help, so they should get it. I have been told by other family members that people have been puncturing ambulances tyres so they cant get out to the scenes! How unkind and silly is that? If a new rule was put in place to not fine people for calling a ambulance if a little child did it, people would forever more be saying that there child did it, even if it wasn't true. Also, we have to put into consideration that if it was a possibility to put in this rule, the government would have already done it. Maybe they could put in a rule to fine parents even if it was there child because they should be watching there baby and keeping there phones out of reach of them anyway.

      But what if it wasn't a mobile phone? What if it was one where you just dial the numbers? In my house, a baby could easily get to the phone, and what if there was a phone next to the baby's cradle, and they thought it was a toy? They could easily dial 999. But I think you still make a good point happy_fact.
