I COULD not agree more with GB Butler (HAS, May 16) who wrote that once the coronavirus pandemic is over then a way and means of properly and sufficiently funding the NHS should be found.

It is patently obvious from the way the people have rallied to help in past months that the NHS is our most prized organisation.

As GB Butler said, a heavy enough National Insurance stamp to cover this cost would be too heavy for many people.

I also think that people would most probably dislike another tax being forcibly taken off their income. A means of obtaining funding that springs to my mind would be a not-for-profit lottery called the NHS National Lottery.

I think that millions of our people would most likely support such a lottery provided all the profits derived were ensured to go to support the NHS.

This is the only way I can think of that is voluntary and not a forcible tax. Perhaps other people can think of better suggestions and if so it would be great to hear from them.
