INdeed, smart remarks aside, I really am cross with those who rubbish the NHS. People sometimes dont know how lucky they are. In America if you're ill you'd better die, every visit to the doctor, never mind anything in hospital, costs a fortune. I've never had anything but gratitude and respect for the NHS, and always remember to thank them profusely. Obviously there are mistakes and glitches, in such a huge organisation it's inevitable, and no one says it's perfect, but you try going somewhere else and comparing.
Wish my friend could say the same. Shes got terminal cancer only has a weeks to live. The doctor kept giving her fluid replacement drinks for dehydration for 8 months, instead of referring her to the hospital for tests.
Yes, but not all the doctors in the NHS are rubbish. And not all private doctors are wonderful either. But an individual doctor does not mean that the whole NHS is bad. Say what you like I think the NHS is super. Just try living without it.
