First the freezy homes and now the rubbish healthcare. Gwon then , is pollution next or perhaps the price of a tomato?

You want to live in NZ and do not need a visa then just come on down. I am sure you will survive.

BTW are you a Brit as you type and spell as a USC abd the idea of finding healthcare is rather American.

I was wondering all these things too BEVS. I wondered if we have a pot stirrer on our hands.
Our health service is okay, it's not the best in the world but it's certainly not the worst. It has similar issues to a number of other countries, underfunding, an ageing population, burned-out staff, underpaid staff, under-staffed etc.
I'll take it over the American system, for example.

I still cant get over that herald article - imagine divorcing your husband and after 30 years him calling up saying I'm in hospital, come and clean me poop up! And then doing it, for ages, then whinging about it!

Well it's just that I find these aspects surprising so am interested to hear perspectives from locals.

I write like this because I've been living in North America for a while.

Oh dear, asking questions is being a pot-stirrer, and make sure to add in the defences too. Look, I think NZ is great, but I'm curious and want to know what the situation is on the ground. I don't know why the suspicion, but so be it.

I guess she cares for him, even as a friend, in sympathy. He has incontinence and no-one was looking after him or changing him. That's kind of sad.

You've chosen pretty extreme aspects for consideration.
there's nothing normal about the examples you've given

Healthcare is fine and free
If you want to pay for private, go right ahead
