After having to use their services for a second time, an American doctor’s praise for Britain’s National Health Service is getting quite a bit of attention.
Two years ago, Dr. Jen Gunter first wrote about her experience with Britain’s healthcare system when she had to take her then-11-year-old son to the ER for an eye injury. The post was viewed over 450,000 times.
This past week, Gunter, who is an an obstetrician based in the U.S., took her cousin Helen to the hospital after she twisted her ankle from walking on cobbles while in high heels. Gunter was amazed at the speed and quality of care her cousin received, saying that she “was triaged immediately. Within two minutes a nurse checked her ankle, gave her codeine, and then sent her off to an urgent care clinic.”
