The NHS (National Health Service) is celebrating it's 60th birthday this year, and I spotted a group of nurses having their photos taken outside a local hotel. They had all been to a celebration there.
For those that don't know, most medical treatments in the UK are free to all UK citizens, although we do pay via all the taxes that we are charged. The system is often abused by people who aren't entitled to use it and it does suffer with other problems; including underfunding in some areas. But it is the envy of the world, and long may it be so.
