Memo to America's Right

Please do not treat the UK's NHS as a
political football and yes I mean 'football'
(there's enough of that o'er here without
you sticking your ten cents worth in!).

Do not underestimate the -
knowledge, skills, creativity and dedication -
of NHS staff, or how it is perceived, valued and loved by the People.

Yes, the NHS is not without its faults (it is also true we are not all Angels), but amid the signs of wear, the aged splinters -

we do not forget the middle,
the constant called change,
or the challenges that beckon in the 21st century.
