Some patients are stupid. As you said legislative changes are required. There should be some charge to see a doctor not 100% free. It should be in accordance with the family income. The poor pay less and the rich pay more. Any system is open to abuse the moment you make anything 100% free. I am in healthcare and doctors think they are god.I agree with you. Both patients and doctors both have abused the system. Patients are not the only ones but there are a lot more patients than there are doctors. While I don't excuse the doctors for abusing it, however, their numbers are far far fewer of them than patients abusing it.
