Right to health

#38: Is access to medical care something that governments should provide, or is it better left to the private sector? Are there drawbacks to your choice?

Since here in the UK the government already provide it, I’d say that they should. Or at least they should provide it for all tax payers/contributors. I’d just like to think that if I had to have life saving surgery, I wouldn’t have to wait for months to get it whilst my condition worsened, or worst case scenario, I couldn’t even have it because I didn’t have the money. Touch wood, I’ll never be in that situation, but it’s comforting to know the health service is there should I need it!
