    The NHS is an inspiring vision of healthcare for all citizens and in my opinion one of the hallmarks of a civilised and egalitarian society.

    We all know.
    Using an acronym doesn't make it any smarter to state the obvious.

    You think myself and divegeester and all the other supporters of the
    NHS are upset that we have contributed to saving badradger's life?

    You don't get any kudos because you had no choice, you were just a dumb beast responding to threats from the sheep herders.

    Individuals do not want kudos contributing to a community project.
    The vast, vast majority of people in the UK value the NHS.

    If they didn't a Farage type would have made it a
    political question - its cost is far, far more than the EU.

    Sorry to hear about your heart attack but I also heard the Brits have a LONG waiting list for those who are not as bad off medically as you. The same thing is going on in Canada too.

    Here in the US they fuk you out of your money but you do get faster service. Whether it is better of course is up in the air but it is faster.

    I could do with a new left knee my floorlaying job of 50 years has nacked it up,the waiting list is about 18 months but the younger you are the longer you wait, they reckon you only get about 10 years out of a new knee, if I want to go private its about £7000.00 british pounds and could be fixed in about 6 weeks.getting in to see your GP is tricky unless you play the system, so if I need seeing I say send a doc out, that usualy gets you in that day, otherwise threaten to go to A&E that's immediate entry.

    You sure?
    You may get initial consultation quicker but my understanding is that many
    patients in US are passed from one specialist to another and undergo way
    more scans and x-rays and examinations because all the doctors are
    frightened of litigation. Which makes the US system expensive, inefficient
    and ineffective (look at average life spans).
