I FELT the need to write this letter to air my disgust at the way doctors, nurses, surgeons, orderlies and porters etc have to put up with low wages when they have the toughest jobs to do.

Private doctors, who make enough out of their patients, should get the percentage cap and NHS should get three per cent. These NHS doctors, nurses etc treat anyone in need and do lifesaving treatments and operations etc for a pittance. Also I would love it to come about that highly paid footballers who just kick a ball around a field should exchange their wages for the NHS wages.
