Education about diet and lifestyle habits is another.


Whilst this is undoubtedly true, it only reduces the probability of ill health. It does not mean it won't happen to you, however.
I would be described as being very low risk - eat plenty of fruit and veg, cycle regularly, walk even more regularly do not smoke, drink moderately ( well within guidelines) and am not diabetic. Yet I still succumbed.

It is not a pleasant experience

I am still here, and more Renewable than ever before, thanks to the NHS.

"The Plot Against the NHS", by Leys and Player, dates from 2011 but is an excellent analysis of what's been happening for years.

The later chapters propose answers: the best counter-argument is that the Infernal Market (shome mishtake shurely _ed) never happened in Scotland (NHS Scotland is a completely separate entity to NHS England), and they're doing just fine.

NHS apparently 980m in the red. A lot of this is to do with expensive agency nurses and other staff.....

Another reason, not mentioned, is that no enough people are putting into this system compared to what is taken out.

I'm not clear what 'in the red' means when it come to government bodies.
