    If you don't like it, nobody is forcing you to use it - its a world class healthcare system, its free and yet you still have the cheek to moan! You deserve nothing. Who made you more qualified than a doctor to give out a diagnosis? You make me sick.

    Personally I have never had any problems with the NHS. The problems you describe sound more like defects in your local surgery and pharmacy than in the NHS as a whole. In any case, I can tell you that the situation would only get worse if the NHS was dismantled and privatised.

    Okay, go back to pre-1948 Britain and see how well taken care of you would have felt back then.

    Failing that, go to the USA, don't get any health insurance and tell us what happens.

    Me too I had X-rays and bloods taken for an appointment I waited months to get. Only to find out when I called about a month later (as I know they can be slow processing letters and referrals etc) that I had been discharged and they had written to my GP staying no further action. Even though she had promised to refer me as she didn't know what was wrong with me. So I'm back to square one with still no idea with what's wrong with me and no idea what my test results were and a cheeky receptionst telling me she was too busy to talk to me. Then transferring me to the doctors secretary who wasn't in left a message and I am yet to hear anything. Guess I'll just keep struggling on until my hips give way so badly that I can't walk anymore, cheers NHS.

    I think your story is really really interesting how about you tell us more and more about it without punctuating or even attempting a semblance of writing a legible and grammatically comprehensible post I like turtles if you had any idea how cancer was diagnosed you wouldn't spew this kind of garbled crap on the internet and omg your friend died of a sore throat that must have been a damned bad sore throat to be so severe as to kill her because her doctor gave her paracetamol and yeah let's abolish the entire NHS and leave people with no healthcare at all because all those millions of people in the majority who do get good healthcare from it can go **** themselves because your story about one person who apparently had their terminal sore throat missed means that the entire thing never does anything good ever let alone for the vast majority of patients who go through it omg I better go write more crap like this elsewhere on the internet ta ta see you soon omg here it comes the only full stop in my entire post.

    I know a friend who got 30 days in gaol for possession of 1g of cannabis - never in trouble before, and only crime committed, peaceful and cooperative. Now, I hate everything about law - legal personnel, judges, the prison service, parliament, the police. The lot.

    Of course, this is reasoning by anecdote, but it makes you realise the nonsense in what you say.

    Yup. Only yesterday were £80M+ worth of mental health contracts were offered to profiteers. All without your knowledge. #TheToryWay

    This infuriates me so much. :mad: OP, you're an idiot. You can't even write a proper sentence and suddenly you know better than doctors who have spent YEARS training to practise Medicine in their respective fields? I'm sorry about your friend but that doesn't mean there's something wrong with the system - millions of people benefit from the NHS every single day because of those hard-working doctors you're ****ging off. Have a bit of respect and think about what healthcare professionals do for everyone in this country who complains just like you.

    Every healthcare system has its faults, so if you don't like the NHS then I hope you'll be happy with private doctors swindling you out of thousands while they run unnecessary investigations and waste your time more than the NHS ever would. Better still, if you can't even be grateful enough for a FREE healthcare system where everyone gets an equal right to treatment, then why don't you **** off to another country where the proper healthcare infrastructure doesn't even exist? Go to a place in which people can't even afford basic medications, and think for a minute before you come out with **** like that. You should be grateful that you live in a country that doesn't have those kinds of problems.

    Oh look, the tin foil privatisation brigade are out.

    It doesn't make a difference who provides the healthcare - private businesses or state-operated organisations. Ultimately the taxpayer still pays either way, for the same end-service to be delivered. The endless bull**** propaganda about the Tories and how terrible anything involving private business is simply because it's private is just pathetic.

    Everything described by the previous users happened long before contracts were offered externally, and most of the contracts now offered are where existing state bodies were already failing
    to provide good services and wasting a lot of money in doing so.

    But please, continue spouting the ignorant socialist propaganda, if you do manage to elect a party which does the opposite, the health service will still have the same flaws, if not more.

    It's not really surprising, let's be honest. Private companies take over, suck out profit, leave it in debt, and withdraw from the contract. It's how it works - the NHS ending up paying masses out for the failure of a contractor, that we subsidised anyway.

    No, you are wrong. Sorry. I will criticise any government that is doing wrong - I'm not one to ignore it and go along due to any partisanships.
    If you want the source, or not, I shall edit in, for all to see.
    It's sad you don't see the full picture. There are countless examples of private companies taking contracts, and driving them into the ground, leaving us with a massive bill to pay for their failings.

    If you look at my previous remarks, you'll see my opinion on what has been said - mainly from the OP.

    I think people deserve to know what's going on, don't you? The Health Sec, who the BMA has passed a VONC against is privatising services under the public table. People should be aware of it - I'd suggest it's demoratic, but that's me, a mere member of the "tin foil privatisation brigade". It almost sounds like the words a clumsy oaf would use, but I prefer to attack substance.
    Sadly, I can't vote yet. But, having spoken to people about their experiences of privatised health care, and those using NHS care, particularly for vulnerable grandparents, I would much prefer a party that doesn't actively support privatisation.

    1. Why should private companies, who's directors are political doners, profit from public services?

    2. Of course they were already failing. They were most likely underfunded. Rather than fund the service properly you hand the service contract (and chunks of public money) to your pals in the private sector. Defund, undermine, privatise. And how ironic we're being labeled tin hat conspiracy theorists when the mere suggestion that the public sector might be better providing services than private interests leads to "free marketeers" seeing big Government commies in their Corn Flakes.

    I must admit it is a bit mean of mean to say such things about the NHS its just I keep having problems with my gp becaue when I call first thing in the morning they always say no appointments or book 2 weeks in advance I mean no one is going to knwo they will be ill 2 weeks before? Therefore I am annoyed as if people do not see the doctor right away if they have an infection then they could have it so severe if they wait for so long. I once had an ear infection I saw 4 NHS doctors in a month none of them cured it so when I went privately it was cured right away. I did have some good experience with them though I think their A&E service is amazing however I cannot say the some for the gp. But now the A&E is no so good as it used to be I think its because when GPs appointments take so long people use the A&E not for emergencies such and then they deal with things the gp should deal with not a&e. Therefore I sometimes go privately as when I had a blood test the results come back the same day while the NHS takes a while and you only know if it is good or bad you do not know the actual numbers so I do find it annoying. I find that the problem is the appointment time is too long then people use a&e inappropritely because if they wait too long for an appointment their illness could be more severe. My friends infection went into the bloodstream so she died of blood poisioning it may be that the appointment times are too long and this could be life or death if you wait too long.
