Right to health?

I love our NHS, for many reasons.

I love that it’s free and that decisions about my healthcare are made by people without concern over their own payment – and that drugs companies don’t have doctors under their thumbs.

I like that there are guaranteed waiting times – that hospitals have to organise your appointment within a certain timeframe – and that there are choices to be made as to where you have treatment should you need to.

At my particular doctor’s surgery, it is relatively easy to get an appointment. I am lucky, though, in that it has been a long time since I’ve needed any such treatment.

Still, I know that I would miss it and the whole country would be worse off without it.
