The health of the nation
If anyone in Britain falls ill they can get treatment by doctors, specialists, nurses, psychiatrists, dentists or any of a dozen other professions in their home or in hospital without worrying about the cost. That is the triumph of the National Health Service. It has many detractors but none can deny that it has taken out of illness the anxiety of footing the bill, which still haunts much even of that part of the rest of the world that is lucky enough to have a medical service of any kind.
