Socialised Medicine? The Horror!!! [View all]

My partner had a health crisis last night. We decided to wait and see if the situation had improved this morning and it hadn't. So I call an ambulance. They were here in less than 15 minutes. Thorough check over and off they went to Accident and Emergency. Saw a doctor within 20 minutes. Barrage of tests, some medical interventions, a referral to the right expert department (to be seen within the next two weeks) and home within 5 hours in total.

Cost of invoice - well there wasn't one, of course...

How could anyone not agree that this is a great model for the average chap and chapette? How could anyone who is being clobbered by the private insurance model ever vote to continue being mugged by the system every time they get sick, when it does not have to be that way? It is not logical.

I am such a communist
