    Didn't Gordon Brown put a penny on NI about 15 years ago?

    Problem with NI is that not everyone pays it.

      I have a different take - all these posts illustrate the 'postcode lottery' that operates within the NHS.

      With both main parties committed to devolving decision making in all areas of public services down to lower and lower levels there cannot be anything other than "post code lottery's". Each local decision making body will have it's own priorities depending on it's own particular circumstances.

        May I add that the NHS operates differently between the countries of the U.K ?

        All the posts relate to England. I have no recent GP experience to offer.

          We have 4 Doctors at our surgery, 3 female, 1 male, none of them British.
          When you are sitting in the waiting room, you have a job to understand what they are saying when the name of the next patient is called by the doctor over the loud speaker system. just saying.

            I had to check my GP's website - 3 doctors all female. Not surprising as the majority of medical students are female and that has been the trend for several years. Not representative though.
