To help you appreciate the NHS. I had a private second opinion on my knees. I happily paid the bill of £250 as I also had some comprehensive xrays taken at the same time so not such a bad deal.
(He said on a scale of 0 - 10 --- ten being totally rubbish. Mine were about fifteen)
Then I got a second bill for the said xrays. £401.00 --- OMG.
Makes one appreciate what the NHS does for us.
