Love everything other than the poor Medical system and lack of variety of food supplies from Denmark and Germany.

You don't like the medical system really? I like it because some things are free, in my home countries we have to pay for even the most basic things

Its good that its free but it has to be effective. I've lived in Germany and although we had to pay(there are concessions for old people etc(, the medical system was so effective and quick. I love Britain to bits but that's the one thing I don't like about it. Doctors can be negligent often and certain operations take way too much time.

Lol. Just because its free doesn't mean its effective and quick. I've lived in Germany and although we had to pay, the medical system was PERFECT. I'd rather pay and get quality treatment than not paying and having to wait for so long or not getting proper treatment.

But education isn't free? Your fees are outrageous!

As a person who is into really into history, there is honestly no better place to be from than Britain
But also the atmosphere in general. Whenever I visit a place in Britain, it always feels like home. Couldn't imagine living anywhere else, to be honest.

The NHS- I'm a regular user (like 6 times a week I go to the hospital or doctors for my wide range of medical issues), even though I complain a lot about waiting lists for referrals, a&e etc etc. It's the best thing that the UK has created, it's free and accessible to everyone, if I had to pay, I'd have died when I was 2 years old and I'm 17 years old now going to university when I was told I couldn't go. As much as it isn't perfect, once it's gone, it's gone and nothing can be done to get it back once everything's privatised. It's a shame to see it get to the state it's in, I hope to become a mental health nurse (going to uni in September ) and to then, repay back my duties in the health system. It'll be an absolute shame when it goes

Probably, but then it's not entirely free.
My country has free education. Higher ed is 100% free unless you go to a private institution, and even then it's less than in the UK.

Education from nursery up to college. In many countries this isn't free.

what do you mean probably? it definitely is free until 18 years of age when you choose to go onto degree level or not? you don't have to have a degree?
