It’d be cheaper to have a totally free #NHS, with spare capacity

The story that the present A&E crisis is mainly due to seasonal illnesses, such as flu, is alarming.
Not simply alarming for the poor management, which has failed to ensure spare capacity for such an expected event, but for the lack of resources to cope with some more serious problem; a plague, or major catastrophe.
However; unless the Government, in its intent on austerity measures, is prepared to deny health services to the masses, next Winter, might it not be a saving to extend the free flu vaccinations, for the very young and very elderly, to the work force, on whom the Chancellor relies for economic growth?
