I am British, I am 57 and all of my life I have never had to think about healthcare. I know the NHS gets a bad press but when you consider that that institution deals with over 2 million people a day, there is bound to be some unacceptable failures of individual care. No system is perfect.
I am quite confident in saying that if the NHS (National Health Service ) was attacked by any political party in the UK there would be riots and civil disobedience. That is the measure of esteem that the UK people hold the NHS in.
For someone from the UK to have to worry about the cost of going to the doctor is unimaginable. For someone in the UK to have to worry about the cost of drugs or going to hospital (apart from drop in income) is, for us unimaginable.
This is funded by all of us, rich and poor, not without complaint, but by and large by consensus.
Healthcare is a human right. Why is it such a big deal in the US? By the way, the US spends twice as much on healthcare per head of population the UK but their life expectancy is lower. Sometimes standing together is good!
