If everything we read in the press is to be believed our beloved NHS is failing, teetering on the brink of collapse and should be quickly sold off bit by bit to cash rich private health care companies.
Of course, most of us realise that this is mainly propaganda aimed at turning public opinion against the NHS, so that it can be replaced by an American style private health care system.
We’re not saying that the NHS is perfect (far from it), but the images below show that it is STILL regarded as the very best health care service in the developed world (and one of the cheapest), according to the results of a survey.
In comparison, health care in the United States is considered as one of the very worst in the developed world, again according to the survey, and much more costly per head than the National Health Service, the majority of us regard as a national treasure which needs to protected at any cost.
