Reject proposal to let NHS hospitals take 49% private patients

Additional Information

People who need the NHS and are not rich enough to be able to afford private health care should not have to compete with patients who can afford it.
It is not fair that a patient relying on the NHS is having to wait longer for a bed, because someone has been able to jump the queue due to their better financial situation. NHS facilities should not be used for private patients.
