That's a good NHS.
Here, people pay for it (forcedly) and get NOTHING in return.
I don't pay for the national health insurrance here.
It costs me 25% of that, to simply make a call to a private clinic and be back in one hour ... all done.
Last year my sister had an accident. An idiot with a bike ran over her. I got called that she was in ER. I went there. She was on a bed with no cover. I had to put some money in the staff's pocket, to get her a blanket. When she wanted to use the bathroom, there was no paper, soap, or anything similar. Again, I had to buy those.
The room she was in, smelled like hell.
It was about 4m by 4m, and there were 5 patients there.
So what's the point in paying for that?
She also had a health issue. After 4 months of going to hospitals, nothing was solved. I haven taken things into my hands, and scheduled her to my private clinic. They figured it out and cured her in a matter of 1-2 days.
It all costed less then what she pays monthly for health insurrance.
Ever seen one of those 3rd world hospitals in movies? Those are pretty real here, in Romania's 3rd largest city.
So STOP complaining. As long as you wait one hour, but you get serviced, that's fine. How about : pay, wait, and get NOTHING?
