  1. From the Guardian’s coverage:

    “Second, the NHS is wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. The doctors saved my husband’s life, the physios have restored him to strength, and for most of them nothing has been too much trouble. But the inflexibility of the system is staggering.

    So the individual doctors and nurses are wonderful, but the system is terrible. Therefore the NHS is wonderful? I despair.

  2. In Jackie’s eyes the NHS is always wonderful, as a concept. But like many lefties (see her Wiki page) they don’t see past it to the real life issues that will always plague such concepts when real humans (as opposed to the left’s view of the ideal person, cf. Eugenics) get involved.

  3. Jackie Ashley’s complaint is that there should be greater provision for continuing physiotherapy for stroke patients after their discharge from hospital. Could the NHS bashers please enlighten us as to how a different economic model for healthcare would make such provision generally available?

    If they don’t provide the extra service, they don’t get paid the extra money.
