As you know,in places like America they have to pay a lot of money for their own health insurance yet a 10th of the population in the US do not have health insurance,which isn’t good because without it they probably wouldn’t afford healthcare itself.As a country if we got rid of the NHS many of us wouldn’t have the amount of money to suddenly start paying for a health insurance as well as all the other bills everyone has to pay.Following on from this,most people rely on the NHS so much that if they were to get rid of it they would be nothing unless they have the money to pay for their health.
I am going to get other people’s opinions on what they would do if the NHS was gone.I know I have don’t this twice but many people find it interesting to hear other people’s opinions since there are a majority of different reasons and they like to hear ,if it’s different,the other side of the argument.Here are some of my family’s opinion.
Dad:“It may not be perfect but I will take any type of care and I don’t want to have to pay for my own health insurance.”
Mum:”It would be a disaster since we can’t pay for it and as well as that they are making us pay for things that we never used to pay for.”
Me/englitened_panther:”I would hate to have the NHS destroyed since it does so much for us especially because it’s free.As well as this,it’s going to be a lot of money if we don’t have the NHS.”
My sister:“I think that if we lost the NHS it would be a country wide disaster. I believe this to be true because the NHS is used thousonds of times daily. Whether it’s going to the dentist,the doctors,the hospital or simply getting your eyes checked at the opticians. If we had to begin to pay for these services most people living in the UK would not get the proper healthcare that they require. This is the case in many countries such as America. A lot of the UK population is quick to moan about the long waiting times or the tired nurses/doctors who are underpaid and overworked but I am certain that they would rather wait an hour opposing to being unable to afford the service in the first place. The worst case senario being that they can’t afford some type of live saving operation. At that point I am sure that they would be begging for the NHS to come back and the whole country would be in crisis.”
Me:“ loosing the NHS would be a catastrophe. Thousands of people would struggle financially. It would be a mistake to destroy it”
