NHS is underfunded but fantastic. The staff are well trained and passionate about it and the work they do. The very rare few that don’t support the NHS in the UK, or more they don’t have an opinion, is that the issue of health care in the UK is not a dilemma they have to wrestle with – why would it be if no-one they know, or even themselves, have never been asked to pay for anything medical. We don’t understand why USA just doesn’t get it. They need to understand the NHS provides a cover for all people regardless of age, wealth or insured or not. This does not mean you cannot top your care up if you choose to i.e. pay for private insurance if you can afford it. Such “top up” insurance is not mutually exclusive i.e. the individual does not lose the right to their NHS services they get both! This optional insurance cost is much much lower than if they had to pay insurance for 100% of potential medical eventualities - as per the US model. So where I’m confused is why are US citizens so worried about changing? they can have the best of both worlds i.e. pay, or not for private insurance - any individuals increase in tax, to cover the US NHS equivalent, will be far less than any current insurance they may have and if they choose to carry on paying the same amount, or more, then go for it and you will then get your own private room, newspaper on your bed and smoked salmon for your dinner after your surgery. Even if the benefit to the society as a whole is still something missed how does a parent come to terms with their grown-up offspring, that cannot fund private medical care independently themselves? do they pay for them?, watch them die? or sell the family home? should they have the misfortune of getting a long-term costly illness? where does this worry and guilt end? best friends, grandchildren, girl/boyfriends, partners. The guilt must be horrendous of enjoying luxuries whilst watching suffering so close to you.

Seems to me that Americans have real difficulty separating 'social' from 'socialist' and appear to think that providing social healthcare means turning the US into a communist state and we all know that the entire country poops themselves simultaneously at the mention of communism.

UK healthcare isn't free. Although no fee is payable at the point of treatment, it is funded from taxation, hence the moans about the number of 'health tourists'. The level of treatment is high and the staff are great. It's a fact of life that you'll hear more noise from people who are dissatisfied (in any arena) than the ones who are happy. The main problem is that UK governments (of both major parties) are not placing the NHS high enough in the list of priorities, so the whole system is starting to suffer. It's not irretrievable, but needs someone to take the big step.

If they are bitching because not enough money is being spent then obviously they are not happy with the medical outcomes they are getting. Of cpourse this guy said nothing about that.

They want more money for the system because Elitist Tories have systematically robbed money from the NHS through years of cuts. Don't see anyone campaigning for the privatisation of medical care. The system would work if it wasn't for Jeremy Hunt and the traitors that vote for people like him.

NHS beds, wards, entire hospitals as well as Accident & Emergency facilities have been closed down by BOTH main political parties when they were in power for decades. It's not just the Tories; it's been a basic failing in central government for decades but should be properly funded for the good of the people who pay their taxes. I agree that Jeremey Hunt needs removing, though. How can a man who co-wrote a book on how to dismantle the NHS be put in charge of running it?

It's incomparable. Labour made mistakes with the NHS, but theirs was the biggest increase in spending since 1985, and they built over 100 new hospitals and saddled taxpayers with the bill. ANd lets not forget without Labour the NHS wouldn't even exist. Meanwhile Hunt has systematically tried to destroy it. Traitors.

Trump is not, nor ever has been a politician, that's the first point to make. Next, he barely even understands the US constitution, let alone the way other countries work, so he should do his homework before making stupid remarks where the world can read them, although it's no surprise that what he puts on antisocial media is often bullshit because he's so full of it.

His stream-of-consciousness utterings are not the considered thoughts of a learned person. They are the late night ramblings of someone who is operating on the belief that his position makes him the font of all knowledge when he has proven time and again that he is ignorant in so many respects.
