We all moan about our NHS, myself included and I work for them! However I don’t think we always appreciate how lucky we really are.
I was reading on another blog the other week about how in Ireland is costs so much money to attend the doctors and then get a prescription filled that she really had to think about whether or not it was a necessity to see a doctor (I’m really sorry I can’t remember the name but if this sounds like your post please let me know and I’ll edit).
I’m sure that I am not alone in thinking that if our children (and sometimes ourselves, although this is rare) are ill I wouldn’t hesitate in ringing the doctors to book an appointment. Maybe we have all become to reliant on the NHS and see it as our right to see a doctor and get medications whenever we feel we need to.
This being said I know that the NHS is not perfect, I too have had my fair share of medical nightmares. However I do still believe that having a NHS is good for our country and I wouldn’t like to see us all having to have private healthcare insurance like you do in so many other countries.
I do believe that the NHS bracket should include eye tests for all and dental check ups including emergency dental treatment.
