England's health care system has many different aspects to it and overall I would feel uncomfortable to have to rely on the English's health care system for anything other than getting me two aspirin and a cup of water. Depending on where you go in England and what city you're in will depend if you are actually getting professional care or something equivalent to Dr. Kevorkian. Overall England's health care system has its ups and its downs; however for most of the population of London who does not do health care privately I would say England is committing genocide among the people in low socioeconomic levels.
England's health care system is a nation health system that you pay into called "National insurance". This is a requirement or a type of tax that provides England with the funds to provide such a "wonderful service." This is more targeted towards thoughts within England who are disabled or the elderly. Overall about 86% of prescriptions are provided free by the English health care system. This idea within itself is wonderful to take care of the elderly, handicapped, and poor and provide free health care for them.
However England's health care system varies depending on the region you are in. Scotland's health care system is exceptional. Many of the English born citizens of England as a whole are moving to Scotland for its wonderful health care. This has to do with the fact that England's Nation Health Service (NHS) does not exist in Scotland has a large role to play in its faster, better, more reliable health services.
Scotland's health care services are provided by fourteen regional health boards and are subdivided into community health partnerships. They also provide superior free health care services for all permanent UK residents. This would be why the older generation English citizens are moving to Scotland and other countries for superior health care services compared to England's health care system.
Wales was run by the NHS up until 1999 and now the Welsh Assembly has control over the health care system in Wales and runs it independently of England's NHS or England's health care system overall. Wales is also preferred by the older generation of English citizens and provides reliable health services. They also provide their own ambulance service, which is superior to England's by far.
London is the largest problem area for health care in England. If you call for an ambulance there is little to no chance unless you are straight up dying that an ambulance will show up. They do not have enough ambulances, or EMT's to provide a real service to London's citizens. One would in faster time get to the hospital by hopping public transportation in the area then wait for an ambulance.
England's health care system supposedly covers all types of health issues including disabilities and serious health problems. The fact is they do sometimes, however there are many times they will fudge their own records so that they will not have to pay for expensive treatments. I have talked with many individuals near London who are not even allowed to look at their medical records. They are also the ones who have informed me of the record fudging or loss of records all together on purpose.
From other interviews and discussions with London's citizens they have also informed me that people die waiting for operations and even just trying to see a doctor. The emergency services are very poor and your assigned general practitioners normally at least takes a week to see if you manage to even see them at all. Overall England's health care system especially in London is almost the equivalent of seeing Dr. Kevorkian on Christmas Eve.
