The problem with the UK's National Health Service is that the nation is paying for everyone's health care. That means someone else is making the decision about when you live or when it is too much effort to keep you alive. In a private health care system, that decision is up to you (and the size of your wallet). In the UK, if you want to pay for your own child's health care to save their life after the state has decided your child should be allowed to die, the police will barricade the hospital to stop you. (The article doesn't mention the police barricade, but it was reported on at the time).
There is no system where everyone gets unlimited medical care for free.
