NHS: four different services

A four-way split on the NHS is about how the NHS was set up (60 years ago) to provide universal health service for everyone living in the UK. However, because of devolution, there are actually four different services in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. It's not really fair or universal if the service provided is different depending on where you live. (link via BBC News) What are your thoughts about this?


  1. I certainly think that it's unfair. I guess that the situation will get more muddled, and resentment will grow by those losing out.
    All too typical I'm sorry to say! xx

  2. You are so right about how it is going to get even more muddled (as England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland each get a vastly different NHS) and make for growing resentment.

    It's certainly an important issue as the NHS celebrates its 60th anniversary today.
