Lemme ask you a question, you say Free health care, how can it be not available to everyone when it's Free?

That's what everyone means. There's no including this person and that person since it's EVERYONE.

I can list those who I find important to me to be listed if I want.

By the way. According of wikipedia.

The classical definition of a person is "a human being regarded as an individual."[1] In modern usage, the term "person" is subject to dispute and re-interpretation based on alternate definitions. This is especially so for uses that are not necessarily synonymous with the classical definition of human or human being.


I had a good reason to list also veterinarians patients. I wanted to show that I also care about you too... Since human doctors probably wont treat you.

I think in my country, some hospital and pharmacy is not free. medicine is not affordable for poor people but now our government set up a new policy that poor people can check up their health also medicine with free, but I think not spreading between some areas. I hope government should have give more concern about poor people's health indeed. free itsn't for everyone :) thanks Talking point and all who votes here

I hope so. It will be a wonderful thing. But it seems to be difficult to carry out.

In our country, Health scheme recently free for everyone who has no other health security scheme. This means nearly 97-98 % of people in our country are covered by one health scheme and they need not to pay for fee and charge. Thanks to the goverment for giving the free-for-charge health scheme equally to all people in the country. This scheme surely have benifits to all Thai people. But! however, health personnel, especially doctors and nurses, have many trobles from the health scheme. First of all, number of patients is increasing rapidly. Some doctors have to care at least 200 patients per day(I mean 200 patients per a doctor per day). Secondly, as result from increasing patients, most patients need high quality of care. Some expect as high quality as the private hospitals: not wait too long, get the best medicine, get the best intervention, get the best operation, the best health outcome, but as CHEAP as possible! In my opinion, the most challenge our goverment must handle with is how to balance between the quality and the quantity.

Yes. Free healthcare should be available to everyone, including prisoners, corruptors, rapists, cold blooded killers, and of course EC members.

OK. Don't kill them. Just ask them to sleep with eyes and mouth open. Good idea :?:
