The UK NHS continues to give me excellent service
I had to reply to jsargent and his negative comments about the British NHS. As a UK resident, I am VERY happy with the NHS. I had a lump on my groin so I went to my doctor and he diagnosed a hernia. He contacted a specialist at the local hospital who confirmed the diagnosis and then I was asked when I'd like the repair operation done. I chose a date and it was done on that date. I now have regular checkups of blood presure, cholesterol, blood sugar, urine analysis, etc. and I get called in if I leave it too long between checks. Jsargent must have been unlucky with his daughter's need for medical attention. I have an American friend who visits the UK annually and on the rare occasions she has used the NHS, she too has had nothing but praise for it.
