NHS? it's a funny one as my experiences have only been good: My daughter gave birth to a healthy baby girl in September. The pre natal and ante natal care, along with the birth itself, was perfect. I had a health scare which was detected quickly, tested quickly and (luckily) found to be fine My brother fell off his bike, fractured/dislocated his elbow and detached his triceps. All dealt with very quickly. My brother had cataracts detected and within 12 weeks had both lenses taken out and brand new lenses 'installed'. They do work under very difficult circumstances, but in all of the circumstances above, the patients were cared for by very dedicated staff who did not let their circumstances affect their positive nature.
