Maybe NHS was good when it started, but these days it's falling apart at the seams.
I suggest looking at continental European countries for better single payer healthcare systems. e.g. my experiences with the French system show it to be light-years ahead of the NHS (although I'm sure that system is on a downward slope too, like the rest of the western world).
