This National Health doctor visits her in her little third floor apartment on a regular basis. No extra cost. She can't believe that if we were sick in the U.S. we would go to a doctor's office. ( or surgery as they are called)

Yup...lousy service in Britain. She can count on her doctor checking up on her regularly.


Oh come on. Under the for-profit, Bush health care plan concierge doctors make house calls in The Hamptons if you were born wealthy, or pulled-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps enough to afford the several thousand dollar fee.
