Brits’ Blind Love for the NHS

The diary of ex-obstetrician Adam Kay tops UK bestseller lists for its brutal-but-funny account of his traumatic years working for the NHS.
 
The universal health system—Britain’s largest employer—provides free care to a population of 65 million. But the NHS is in turmoil amid stagnant spending and growing demand; it's also beset by bureaucratic hurdles, IT failures, and wildly overworked staff.
 
So why does 80% of British public back the NHS in its current form? “It’s not a matter of logic, it’s not even a matter of nostalgia—it’s love,” says Kay.
