The UK's National Health Service provides a lot of free treatment for UK citizens.

Origins

After World War II.

COVID-19

Full article: COVID-19

Fear of exceeding the NHS' capacity due to an influx of COVID-19 patients was use as the major argument behind the UK COVID-19 lockdown. Thousands of patients were sent home and a lot of non-COVID operations were cancelled, leading to a lot of unused capacity and idle staff.[1]

Mass surveillance

"A British woman says she was threatened with police visiting her home if she did not download the NHS coronavirus ‘track and trace’ app", which was officially voluntary.[2]

Privatization

A creeping privatization project has been underway for decades, degrading the quality of the service and introducing charges.
