I was born in the UK but have lived in Australia, the US & Singapore amongst others. Now retired to Cambridge it is apparent to me that the NHS is falling apart and cannot cope and that the standard of health care is greatly inferior to that available in my former countries of residence. Not just slightly inferior but massively inferior. Recent examples: 1) Major foot problem making it very difficult to walk. GP says need to see a specialist but have to try Physio first. Fine, except that it took 3 months to get a response from NHS Physio telling me they will write to me again in 5 months time when I've progressed sufficiently far down the waiting list! Then another 4 months minimum (I'm guessing, based on the next example) before the specialist appointment can be made. Clearly, at 70 years old they are hoping that I never have to attend! 2) Another specialist appointment for a different condition will have taken 6 months before I attend the clinic in June; 3) Had a contact today with the NHS 111 number which ended in a total failure to get help because of the total inflexibility of the medic involved for what was a resolvable and obvious condition normally treated with a broad spectrum antibiotic. Can't leave the house for tests so a 95% chance of cure with the antibiotic normally prescribed for this would have been logical & would have allowed me to do that. Now at an impasse.
The UK Government appears to be doing nothing about this. Uncontrolled immigration with no end in sight (all of the countries that I've lived in have immigration policies in line with the ability to absorb immigrants and 4-year visa holders in key jobs without undue strain on public services - it really is very easy). No diversion of funds from the overseas 'aid' budget; an apparent willingness to accept the 50 billion unaudited & unsubstantiated bill from the EU etc etc.
You couldn't make this up!
