22. the point is that...
...the insurance companies are out to make a buck but a government run system also has to control costs. this has not happened in the NHS over the last 10 years. the government has thrown money at it and achieved improvements in waiting times for operations and increased measures of patient satisfaction but these gains are well below the governments own targets (and to be fair were starting from a very low base).

the NHS is free at the point of use and is great if you don't need serious treatment. otherwise you going to be on the end of a long waiting list. that is the reality.
