I love the NHS. Went to ChetlenhamGeneral, grabbed a blood test ticket, went to radiology, had an X-ray within 10 mins, popped back to the bloods area, had a cuppa ( and a cheeky flapjack) read a magazine, had my bloods done - and WE DONT HAVE TO PAY A PENNY!!!!! All staff were just lovely. We are so lucky!
