    Hi donmurray,

    i can assure you that the statement you quoted wasn't meant in any way whatsoever, to patronise my colleagues. why should i, in the first place? i can also assure you that i strongly believe that the people i work with, wherever they may have been trained, are all mature enough to notice whether they are being patronised.

    people who think that they are patronised, only think so because they believe that they "REALLY ARE BETTER THAN EVERYONE ELSE", which unfortunately oftentimes is not the case.

    I think there is a world of difference. Health care should be free on the basis of need. Not on the ability to pay. It's a person's life. What if you simply can't afford a "good" package.
    Just out of curiosity, how much is an "average" health insurance.
    I contacted Bupa and private health insurance for my family which consists of 2 adults and 2 children was 160 per month, aprox $300.
    We just couldnt afford it we pay around 400 per month National insurance between us per month.

    Just out of curiosity, why are female charge nurses called sisters in the UK? Makes me think of nuns
    I believe it's because nuns used to nurse people many years ago (before there were "official" nurses)
