  • It costs £27 for a 7.1 minute telephone consultation with a GP.
  • Home visits from a GP lasting 23.4 minutes cost the NHS £114.
  • One prescription from your GP costs £41.35, including the cost of the drug.

Cheap at half the price. The NHS is one of the things Britain should be most proud of.)
