I live in England, and as you know from your media, the NHS is the go to health care to go against your new health plan.
Personaly, i think the NHS is a great idea, yes it has its problems, but everything has its problems. The main problem is supply and demand, because
its tax money, the government are very tight on spending it, so there is never enough money to cover costs of new hospitals/doctors, hence the waiting
But i say its worth it, its alot cheaper than buying private care, and its good to use for general check ups, emergancies, etc etc. If something
drasstic and terrible happens to you, then you would be better of going into private care to get quiker treatment, but you can just get that out when
needed with a phone call and signing up to a healt plan.
I have been treated by the NHS in an emergancy case and general here and there's, and i have been pleased with the treatment.
Look at it this way, if you cant afford health care or your insurance runs out, at least you have a back up. If you still want private health care,
then just go out and get it, the more people paying for a national health service, the cheaper it is.
