NHS "Reform" Open Thread

So, after 65 years of socialized healthcare via the National Health Service, England's House of Lords has evidently decided "enough is enough!" and is busily passing the ironically named "Health and Social Care Bill," which will effectively privatize the NHS in England and turn over healthcare to for-profit corporations.

(Scotland's socialized healthcare would remain intact. At least for now.)

The bill, however, has not yet been approved, so there's still time to fight. British Shakers are welcome and encouraged to leave ideas for teaspooning in comments.
