It's not fair by any stretch of the imagination.

An amount paid by someone can't be an opinion.

No, I reserve the right as patient to recieve a second opinion, and if i'm unhappy with the doctor i'm assigned, I can ask to be treated by another.

Let me break down how it works here in the UK:

We have Primary Care Trusts - they are responsible for the big decisions.

Then we have Hospital Trusts. These trusts are responsible for the Hospitals, and consequently, how care is administered.

The only thing the government is responsible for is the political side.

What?

If you're not willing to take the time to research, then why are we even having this discussion?

No, it isn't, but I'm not going to bother mentioning it any more, as it's clear that you seem to think that UHCs are evil.

Why not? I'm reminded of a famous quote:

The NHS is duty bound to provide the highest standards and quality of care to all who require, at the point of delivery. The Government has little say in this.
