This is where I moan about stuff. Mostly music.

Death and the NHS

WritingsPosted by Roadbloc Mon, April 13, 2015 09:03:19
A bit morbid, but one week ago I was dying. If it wasn't for the NHS, I'd be dead right now. People love to bitch on the NHS and claim their apparent uselessness, I heard plenty of it from other patents in the hospital. But in reality, despite their flaws and lack of funds, I think they're doing an amazing job.

People who critizise the NHS annoy me. Sure, there are issues, things that can be improved, mistakes that slip through the cracks, there always will be. But I would like people to bare in mind next time they think of slagging off the NHS that pretty much no other country has such an awesome system as this. The NHS fixed me up and I didn't have to pay a single penny. That wouldn't happen in most developed countries, America especially, who are still flipping out over the whole Obamacare thing. We are lucky to have the NHS and honestly, with all the abuse it seems to get, I'm not sure if we fully appreciate it. I'd go as far as to say, maybe, we don't deserve it.

My point is, NHS cannot and probably never will be perfect. Not with the current state of the economy and the ever spiraling costs of healthcare. If you're that concerned of your health and feel the NHS aren't doing you justice, go private like the rest of the world HAS to. Be grateful that we have at least the choice state provided healthcare. The majority of the world are not so lucky.

That is all. I'll return to ranting about musics and vidya gamze soon. :)
