    Spent most of last night in an inner city hospital with a sick family member. Was dreading it because of the stories about health care this winter.

    The NHS is under attack from our government who are running it down so that they can sell it off.
    So we get there and she is on a ward. She phoned an NHS helpline earlier when she felt unwell. She described her symptoms and they told he to sit tight because they were sending an ambulance.

    She got to hospital and saw a Dr and had various tests. Then she saw a different specialist and then another as they were trying to pinpoint the problem. She then had an x ray on her back.

    They kept her in overnight for observations and she has just called to say that she has been released and will be going home once her meds have been sorted by the pharmacy. They have pinpointed the problem and all is well.

    The cost to her ? Nothing.It is all covered by our taxation.

    The cost to me ? £2 to park around the corner.

    Many thanks to the staff at the Royal Liverpool Hospital.

    The NHS is worth fighting for. Its the cornerstone of our civilisation.

    124 billion goes into the NHS.

    But there is not enough money to go around.

    It's about time they tried a public-private hybrid, like the French.

    That's a stupid statement he made. There's nothing saintly or magnificent about the NHS.

    We spend less on the NHS than most other countries. The tories are strangling it. We need to address that and protect the NHS.

    The snowflake has become such a dependent of the government who under Obama promised FREE shit to everyone, yet failed to deliver because he gave to his rich liberal elite buddies. Maybe those working at the NHS should work for FREE so then those in need can get the services instead of being pushed aside since those working at the NHS are very overpaid...

    Are you saying there is no private health care or insurance in the UK?
