I <3 Free Healthcare
After the 8 year old woke up with stomach aches, we spent the morning in a couple of emergency rooms, and then the afternoon and night in observation at the child surgical clinic. There was some vomiting in the process. The doctors couldn't exclude an appendix infection until things had settled a bit, but we could happily return home the next day, with an un-operated 8 y.o.
All public health medical services pre-paid by tax money, as it should be. I love the Scandinavian welfare state model.
