I grew up on a street in Wales named after the architect and implementer of the NHS in the UK. I don't know if that colours my opinion in regards to the health system and my feelings on Private vs. Public, but here it is summed up by the man himself:
""No society can legitimately call itself civilized if a sick person is denied medical aid because of lack of means" - Aunerin Bevan
Q, E and bloody D, my freinds.
N.B: For a time, when I couldn't afford to do otherwise, I had Private Health cover through Medibank Private.
I cancelled it last month.
