I love the comment about UK vaccines curing cancer "soon". Thats maybe possibly going to be a great help someday to those dying today because the health system has collapsed. The beautiful mind of a Kiwi.

Last time I had to take my young son to the emergency room the wait time was 7hours, 7 hours for an emergency let that sink in, some wait 12hours or more, some give up and go home to die! No hiding it the NZ public health system has virtually collapsed. As it is even some on private healthcare are struggling to get care due to the complicated relationship between public and private health but you will be better off on private for sure. Something to note is that most NZ employers do not include private healthcare as a salary benefit you will need to get your own and it will be shockingly expensive, plus you still get to pay for the public system via taxes so you get to pay twice and still roll the dice on whether or not you'll actually get care.

Worst healthcare system . Hardworking people pay taxes but the ones who do not work etc clog up the system. It’s better to have private medical

Soon in the UK Vaccines are being rolled out for cancer, based on need determined by dna testing, which will be a game-changer, and likely to be used around the world
As for an example of socialism 'not working', how about the alternative whereby large proportions of the population getting no treatment at all because they can't get health insurance. The poor are people too

The worst healthcare system ever encountered. The superficiality of doctors in this country is incredible, there is an incredibly high number of abortions per year, this is because they refuse to give medical support to pregnant women, basically if you don't have any problems throughout your pregnancy everything will be fine, but if you will have a minimal problem, the doctors will not give you any medicines, they will only prepare you to wait for the abortion. And outrageous, no third world country has such a low medical standard. not to mention how many people die of cancer due to carelessness, they will never tell you that action is needed, always wait and see until one day they tell you, oops it's too late. Not to mention the pediatric service in this country, it doesn't exist, newborns go to the family doctor, who if you're lucky will be specialized in dermatology. New Zealand medical system is not bad, definitely we can say that New Zealand has no medical system

If you were looking for an example of why socialism doesnt work you will find no better example than New Zealand's public health system. Any surgery that does not involve immediately saving your life right now is classified as "elective", meaning its not important to them and you go on a waiting list along with everyone else. Even if you are in indescribable pain you will be waiting YEARS for surgeries that include hip/joint replacements, spinal injuries, cancer treatment you name it. A lot of people have died, gone blind, became paralysed or advanced to incurable stage4 cancer while waiting for treatment. If they had gotten treatment early that could have been prevented. This, along with NZ's deplorable teen suicide rate is NZ's national shame. Kids are not exempt from this and get sent home to die rather than being able to access treatment due to cost and low priority. Rather than attempting to fix any of this the NZ Government has instead chosen to roll out a race-based tribal health authority that will give priority to Maori over other races in a move that completely defies belief in a modern society.
