Sounds pretty good...I can't wait till we get free healthcare!

Quote:
The government statement says: "Patients will have enforceable rights to high standards of care, including hospital treatment within 18 weeks, access to a cancer specialist within two weeks, and free health checks on the NHS for people aged 40-74.
"We will look closely at where we can go further, to establish new rights: for example to NHS dentistry, to evening and weekend access to GPs, to an individual budget for those with long-term or chronic conditions, and whether we can create a right to choose to die at home as further progress is made in implementing the end-of-life care strategy."
The promise that patients will be able to obtain free dental treatment was foreshadowed last week by the health secretary Andy Burnham, when he announced radical reform of dentists' contracts.
