Fuck The Pill

Every time I hear about the failures of private health care systems I thank God I live in the UK. All you need to do to get the pill here is go to a family planning clinic from as young as 13 years old. It’s also free for everyone regardless of whether you pay towards other prescription items.
No gynaecologist need ever be involved, in fact you only ever see one if you have gynae problems and routine smears are handled by GP surgeries. The only thing you do have to do is have your blood pressure checked regularly (how regularly depends on your individual GP practice) which is five minutes with the nurse or you can do it as a part of any other appointment as an aside.
Socialised health care systems FTW.
