    David Cameron the 'Saviour' of OUR NHS ?

    Calling UK----calling UK---Do you trust OUR Government/David Cameron to rescue our fast failing NHS?( Especially now he has promoted a Chief Exec.of a failed hospital-to be leader of the NHS?

    As an American I have watched our current government drag our country and its citizens in to a national health care such as you have in UK.  Please enlighten us here in the US about  what your country has lived with.  I am appalled with the horror stories that have trickled down to us from other socialized medicine recipients.  Read my hub 'a tale of two eyes' and see the contrast that I experienced.

      You should be so lucky. The NHS is superb and Cameron needs to keep his slimy hands off it. He should  keep his feet here and leave other countries to themselves.

      give me a break - the bill that passed here in no way resembles NHS.  You're buying into propaganda splendidly.  Our new system was a "bailout" to insurance companies - not socialized medicine.

    The NHS is not worth saving.  I say this as American who lived in the UK for 8 years. It's fine for minor ailments but, if you are unfortunate enough to contract a major disease, you better have enough money (or insurance) to see a private physician!  And forget about dentistry . . .

      I have a good friend in England who lost his wife to brain cancer a couple of years ago.  The NHS did nothing to help her, insisting she just had a headache and gave her painkillers.   "The envy of the world" - which world is that?  Mars?

      Very interesting article. I think though the main point is being missed in our discussion. No-one in the UK *has* to go to the NHS, everyone has a choice. But for those who have nothing at all, it serves a purpose. Personally, I've found it good.

      Yes I know even NHS has problems and failures. My father was misdiagnosed,given an operation he did not need,and haemoridge took hold due to a careless surgeon,after 3 ops in one week my dear father died. How'er I survived cancer only thanks to NHS.

    The NHS has been a fantastic system so far. Obviously no system is perfect, but the NHS presents the best possible system for everyone. I'm always interested to  hear the scare stories that function as propaganda in the US! My own experience of it is that it is actually pretty good.

    No, I  don't trust David Cameron to lead the NHS. I think he's powerless against those who feed big money into the Conservative Party, and who are much more interested in running and owning businesses and who would love to see the NHS parceled out.

    Ultimately, this is a shame, as it could become closer to the US system - no money= no health care and suffer in silence.

      I agree with you.  British citizens should realize how lucky they are and fight to keep your NHS in tact.  You are precisely right about the propaganda over here and the fact that people fall for it boggles the mind.  Our "system" is a joke at best.
