I'm not sure we should continue calling the NHS a NATIONAL Health Service when it is patently nothing of the sort. The Telegraph has a front page story abot how NICE are preventing English patients from receiving an arthritis drug which is freely available in Scotland and Wales.
I fully recognise that the NHS can't meet every demand made on it, but this example is but one of many. We never hear examples of drugs which are available in England but not Scotland and/or Wales.
Do readers haveany examples?
