I thought British NHS was supposed to be good since it's socialized medicine. Are you saying it isn't?
It's not what it used to be, more emphasis is put on paperwork, targets and performance, since the Trust system was brought into the equation, a lot of money has been spent in the wrong areas. We are dreafully lacking behind in areas like cervical cancer, mortality rates are high in comparison to other countries in Europe, even though we spend millions a year on research.
I personally have always had fantastic care but there are others that havent :(
Im sure someone will come and tell me I dont know what Im talking about and that it's all singing and dancing but most of my family work in the NHS at one level or another and it's generally a topic that discussed in great depth round the dinner table!
I do think it's nice what the British public have done for that poor lady though, we do have a sense of what is the right thing to do.
