I could, feeling as I do at this moment pour scorn on the NHS and direct a barrage of abuse towards the people who have cared for me. If you have the misfortune to end up in hospital, this is a good example of attitude and the system. It’s also a reflection of the resentment that creeps into your outlook as a patient.

During a standard evening check.

Nurse
You ok?

Rich
No, I have stomach pains.

Nurse
Do you want paracetomol?

Rich
Will they help stomach pains?

Nurse
…probably not

Nurse exits without another word.
