The National Health Service of the country was set up
in 1948 shortly after the end of the Second World War.
Its aim is to provide free medical treatment for all
patients who wish to take advantage of the service.
However, it is still possible to obtain private medical
treatment and in this case the doctor charges a fee. To
say that the National Health Service is free is not
entirely true. Every employed or self-employed person
over sixteen years of age must put a stamp on an
insurance card every week. This card is issued by a
government department called the Department of
Health and Social Security. The stamp costs money
and the amount is constantly changing. Part of the cost
of this stamp, in fact the greater part, is borne by the
employer and it finances the National Health Service
together with many other social security benefits.
