Johnny in OKC BS: Private and public medicine (15) RE: BS: Private and public medicine 10 Mar 04

Speaking as an American ~~~
and I am presuming NHS means the British National Health System,

I recently spent a few days in our local V.A. hospital, the
Veterans Administration facility for ex-military.

I was really astonished at the service, both medical and
nursing, that was evident. There was nothing fancy, no frills.
But they cured what was wrong with me, and the two
other fellows in my room. And the food was great -- better
than what I eat at home.

The cost was about one tenth what it would have been at a
private hospital. I can do without the plush cushions in
the waiting room.

I wish we had a VA (or NHS) type of public hospital system
for all US citizens, not just ex-GI's.

Love, Johnny
