    wouldn’t the NHS have more money if they didn’t pay so much towards keeping people alive who are technically killing themselves like smokers or alcoholics?

    Could the NHS cut spending on people with minor illness? For example, people who are just suffering from a cold shouldn’t be able to have the healthcare from doctors who will then not be able to care for the people with a more serious illness. How is this fair?

    If we don’t have money and you have an injury so we could not have any treatment, maybe one day when we have a lots of robots so people can have some rest at home and the robots have to treat all the patients and get them better.

    Could they save more money by only taking serious and urgent problems?

      If you had a small, minor cut which is very deep and you get stung by a mosquito (for example, when you are on holiday or you get stung by a bee) and that cut gets infected, why should they not spend money on that cut to stop it from getting worse?

    Could we help the NHS by looking after are self more? Would spending less time at work and more time relaxing save money?

    If the NHS simply held back on buying expensive, unnecessary medicine, wouldn’t they be able to survive ‘a thousand cuts’.

    If the NHS made fewer redundant buys and tried to focus on their expenditure, wouldn’t they be able to help more people?

    Why employ so many doctors if they are just to bleed out of the cuts?

    • Hi Kindness19,

      The police and ambulances were very fast to take action. They were there incredibly quickly and their work probably helped to save a lot of lives.

      I don’t know if any schools were closed but there were some children involved in the attack. Lots of tourists visit Westminster, including school groups. Some children were injured and are still in hospital.

    Is the NHS really a good thing for just the UK? Would it be better if it was a worldwide organisation?
