Having worked in the NHS for over 30 years I am one of the biggest critics of our NHS when it fails to deliver for patients.
I am also one the NHS's greatest advocates.
I am immensely proud that we in Britain still have universal healthcare for over 60 million people regardless of their wealth. The important thing to know is we have a NATIONAL Health Service even though I acknowledge all its warts and wrinkles.
The NHS will never be perfect but I saw this video from the United States – one of the richest countries in the world - and it really made me think.
As I watched it I thought to myself … our NHS is wonderful!!!
Although the clip is 8 minutes long it is well worth sticking with to understand just how lucky we are to have the NHS. I would love to have some comments on this.
