    ...then why have you continuously blamed me for being attacked for no reason...?!
    If you're a jabroni and you get checked into the Smackdown Hotel then obviously it's your fault for being a jabroni. Everyone knows that.



    no, you don't know that she was forced. that's insane. so you're saying "gender is important because I'm making a baseless generalisation which isn't important". and men aren't baffoons - I can't believe you expect me to take you seriously. I literally cannot. and oh wow you basically just said what I said at the end but rephrased it. well done :|
    This is like gender psychology 101 mate.

    I'm not your ****ing mate
    and it's not psychology, it's sociology if you're justifying it via society's influence, not psychology. and either way, men aren't baffoons. if men are baffoons you could say all sorts of offensive things about women in that vein.

    Sorry I forgot you're a die hard UKIP fan so you don't understand what you probably refer to as "Dago words."

    Absolutely!! I guess I never quite gave the nhs the respect they fully deserved until I had my daughter.
    When you're a first time mum given a vast amount of information and guidelines to equipt you with the responsibility for the little life of another it's those brilliant health professionals of the NHS you look to for advice and reassurance and with out much other choice; made me a little defensive at first but I've been able to put my trust in a lot of them, thankfully!

    Is the NHS perfect? No!!

    Is it being frontlind by a vast majority of dedicated and passionate people?? Absolutely

    I am blind so therefore need to use the computer with special audible screen reader software, yes I'm a mature Student I lost my sight due to being shot in a war (Falklands 1982) before most of you were born. I've listened to some of your comments (not all of them because frankly some of them were boring)
    Some of you in fact most of you seem to have some kind of axe to grind against the NHS but I believe that some of you `numpteys` are like bags of wind that have to say something to `**** off` whatever someone else wants to say.

    Ethereal World thank you for creating this thread, without the NHS I would probably be dead.
    It seems like a lot of folk are content to **** off the NHS but if they are in an accident or one of their family are injured who do they turn to?

    NUMPTEYS if you have nothing nice to say then SHUT THE F**K UP!

    You said that there were no restrictions on the services private healthcare can offer. This is false. I'm not suggesting it is done on the NHS.
    So you read my original post then right?

    Obviously their are restrictions on private companies - they can't for example offer euthanasia.

    But if you bothered to read the conversation rather than replying in the middle of it like a dumpling you wouldn't be so annoying xxx

    Yep.

    Indeed, if you meant "there are".

    I did read it. Obviously you don't find me as annoying as you think you do.

    Well, very good. In caring for me mum, who had serious optical issues, i once called her ophthalmologist on Christmas Eve, at 9 pm (being routed through his answering service). He was the #2 person in the practice. He called me back in about 10 minutes. I arranged to meet him at his office 65 miles away. It took me almost exactly an hour to drive there, with me mum in tow. He arrived about 10 minutes after i did - just as we were attracting the attention of the local police - wondering what we were doing skulking around a bunch of industrial buildings at 11 pm on Christmas Eve. He spent about 1.5 hours with us + took care of the problem - so i cannot complain either. Cheers.

    So today I woke up on the 4th day of having extremely bad inner ear pain in my right ear. It is literally excruciating to touch.

    I actually became a little concerned of the persistence of it but obviously when you work full time you tend to just soldier on because it doesn't seem worth taking time off for.

    So today I woke up and was in agony so called NHS 24 on 111. The guy I spoke to was incredible. He talked through all my symptoms, made sure I was safe, and spoke with a nurse about my issue. He then contacted a local hospital and I have an appointment there in an hour. An hour!

    The phone call lasted about 10 minutes and I only had to wait a minute to get through. The fact that all this is free at the point of access is just amazing.

    There have been numerous times in the past when the NHS have helped me- with my under active thyroid, with my mental health (especially when I needed urgent support), when I had my wisdom teeth out.

    But today I just realised how amazing it is and how much I take it for granted.

    If the NHS has helped you with whatever and whenever, show some appreciation!

    Actually, your healthcare [and lots of other things in the Uk], are NOT "free". This is the trap of socialism. You pay for EVERYTHING that appears to be "free" with everything you purchase. This is the reason that (for example) a 19 inch colour telly in the Uk is around $780 USD, but the same telly in the states [with only one chip different - to make it a NTSC rather than a PAL telly], costs $120 to $130 USD. This is multiplied across the board. To compound the problem, the pay scale in the Uk is considerably lower than in the US [based upon some investigations i ran on typical pay for electrical engineers - which is what i am]. Were i to relocate to the Uk, my living standards would have to be reduced considerably i fear. Cheers.

    Agreed! The NHS has saved my life in the past and I am so thankful for the the wonderful people it employs and for our nation's shared commitment to keeping it running. Without it life would be much harder for so many people. The bottom line is that there would be more deaths in the UK. Couldn't be happier to pay taxes for the NHS.

    Ah yes, the American healthcare system, the one that costs the most, performs the worst and is the laughing stock of the developed world?

    Let's set the scene...

    I was walking through my school field when I was pushed over. I fell on my hand, and my wrist/forearm basically snapped in half, like you could see my forearm was at a 90 degree angle.

    The pain was incredible. It was so bad I puked. I went to the school office, and shocked the staff. An ambulance was called, and the paramedics came in about 25 minutes. The amount of pain I was in was unbearable and I had to sit in the office waiting for 25 long minutes.

    They came and immediately gave me strong pain relief (morphine :eek:) and gas...(you know the one that makes you lightheaded) My mother came and was horrified, literally screaming and crying. I was wheeled out into the ambulance much to the interest of the whole school.

    Sirens on and sped to hospital...

    The ambulance team were so kind, reassuring and made a good start. They even put up with my incoherent mumbling due to the gas.
    Good start NHS!

    I had an X-ray and I was, at that time one of the priority cases in A&E so I was dealt with fast. I had a registrar, give me more pain relief and physically, put my arm back in a normal shape...It was till broken, but not at that terrifying angle...

    IT HURT SOOOOOO MUCH, I was screaming...lol
    But the registar was so nice! Reassuring and efficient!

    I had to stay in hospital overnight and the overnight nurses were rude and unpleasant, you would think that the children's ward would be different but no...
    I couldn't sleep, they had no food to give me because apparently they had finished all the food. I was annoyed quite frankly.

    I managed to get to sleep but for some reason accidentally slept on the nurse call button. So they rudely woke me up and told me to stop playing games.
    Really?

    In the morning I met with the consultant and anesthetist. Both of them were superb! Pleasant nice, really nice people. I remember the anesthetist saying just imagine you're having a big G&T as she was putting me under...really sweet (and Bulgarian :ahee:)

    The consultant was amazing, so amazing that I will be shadowing him this summer!
    Ethereal World Tell me if you want me to continue?
