I do appreciate that people do get different levels of service around the UK when using our National Health Service, but if they were in any other country, dependent on wages and social standing. They would have no where near the same level of care that the NHS provides. People need to understand just how lucky we are here. I know that the states do have slightly better health care, but you have to organise your own insurance, and then you are not covered for everything. At least here, you don't have to even think about health insurance. My heart does go out to any one that has suffered as a result of the NHS, but I do believe that this is not entirely the norm, but this could happen under private health care aswell.
