Should the NHS ever charge extra?

NHS bosses have suggested charging for out of hours GP visits and for hospital meals to try and raise some much needed funds but is this the right way to go about it? Would it be better to charge those who abuse the NHS instead eg people who miss appointments or repeatedly end up in A&E drunk? Or would this be the start of privatisation when we all pay our national insurance for a completely free health service? How would you save money?

The nhs cannot go on in its present form, it needs a massive overhaul. I think the Swedish model sound pretty good.
