Black Friday Stretches Ambulance Services

REVELLERS were urged to take responsibility for their actions by a senior medic yesterday after a night of chaos pushed stretched ambulance services to the edge.

Is it now time to charge (send home a bill) for ALL alcohol and drug related hospital and ambulance treatments?

Unfortunately the responsible side of human nature is forgotten once they sip from the devils cup.

If you're billing for alcohol and drug related treatments; why not charge for smoking and obesity related treatments too?

yes £100 ambulanced call out
£200 medical fees
£100 wasting police time
£100 legal costs
£500 taken directly from your bank
That should sort it and put the NHS back on its feet

What if something happened to someone who was drunk but the injury wasn't related to their consumption of alcohol?

Right - so you've been drinking and you're a passenger in a car crash by a car driven by someone sober, and you require hospital treatment, what happens then?

So one would be presumed guilty and would not be afforded due process just because they had alcohol in their system?

Sounds like a step in the wrong direction to me.

You will probably start screaming and shouting at the poor nurses trying to help you , maybe even become violent and most likely vomit over yourself.

Lol not at all, the whole idea is obviously flawed. :)

BTW - its NOT Black Friday - it was MAD Friday (Big difference:

1. Black Friday - An event where Retailers cut prices of goods and shoppers push, shove and fight to goet their hands on the discounted items. Some require the assistance of police/ambulance services

2. Mad Friday - The Friday before Christmas that is popular with work do's where company staff go out, get intoxocated and make fools of themselves. Some require the assistance of police/ambulance services

Meh - both need the police and ambulance services, Lets just charge for both events...

I understand where you are coming from but the fact that if it was made law that drunks had to pay costs then the total number of incidents would/should be lower and therefore those identified in your instance could be given a waiver of fees.

I'm not so sure. I think drunken accidents are gonna happen just as often even if people knew there was a bill at the end of it. Financial logic goes out the window when intoxicated.

Also, people would use it to doubly do someone over. If someone wanted revenge on someone for example, they'd not only injure their victim physically but then the victim would have to foot the medical bill, so a double whammy.

It's a good thought but I just don't think it'd work as well as it sounds from the outset.
