19. UK's NHS and Armed Forces are linked.

There are no "VA hospitals" in the UK. Or 'VA doctors". Military doctors train and work in civilian hospitals (there used to be dedicated military hospitals but the last closed in the 1990s, so the Ministry of Defence is embedded in various hospitals around the country. Veterans get care just like any other UK eligible resident but if the right strings are pulled, waiting times can be cut down for veterans seeking care for non-urgent, "elective" procedures.

A true universal healthcare solution, with everyone covered and care is rendered free at the point of delivery is the gold standard. Private, public, it doesn't matter.
