Curiosity Corner Competition no.27

Over the school holidays, we asked you to be curious about what why the NHS costs as much as it does. EcHo7360 from St Mary’s and St John’s asked a question about how people could be affected by a rise in taxes. This shows an understanding of how changes to the NHS could affect people. Well done!

Enter this week’s competition here.


We look for questions that make people think about the issue. Make sure they are:

  • Debatable – make sure people could have different points of view on the answer.
  • Based on what you have learned or thought about the issue so far.

  3. Faringdon Community College Faringdon Community College

    Why has pay for doctors risen by 35-11% since 2003? Shouldn’t it be used for hospital beds and medication?


  4. St Mary's and St John's Church of England School St Mary's and St John's Church of England School

    Many are in need of help from the NHS but if the taxes increase to improve the Health Service, what would happen to those who are struggling to pay the current tax fee? How would they survive?
