As an American living in Alnwick for 25 years, I can honestly say that most Americans have no idea how wonderful a service we have with the NHS - expertise without the crippling costs. As it still is, most Americans can't have that. But thanks to the NHS, both my husband and I can. And we have had it over the years both in the Newcastle hospitals in general and in our own Alnwick Infirmary in particular. This very much goes for the Alnwick Infirmary Casualty Department team, as well, as there have been times when both my husband and I, as well as visiting friends, have sought them out. And each time in all our experience, no matter how tired they might be, they have been absolutely wonderful - thorough, kind and reassuring. I guess I'm lucky to have lived on both sides of the Atlantic: Maybe it takes that for both Americans and British alike, coming from two entirely different experiences, to appreciate just how lucky we are here in the UK
