In Britain the NHS began in 1942 and it's still going strong today. We pay contributions from our wages when we work and are entitled to free treatment in hospitals and doctors surgeries. I think this is a great service, don't you?

I find this system very interesting.  Our costs here in the US are spiralling out of control, and the sad truth is everyone suffers.  The patients are not getting the care they need, and postpone going to the Doctor due to the expense, and the doctor's are not getting paid from the insurance companies, even though the insurance companies are being paid.  When it comes to procedures with the NHS, is there a long wait time to have the surgery done?  Do younger people get preference over the seniors?
