What does the NHS provide, and what can to be done privately?

4Submitted by Izwe - View comments

I found this FAQ, but it's seven years old, and probably(?) out of date. The NHS Website lists a few things, but I'm sure they vary by location. Private clinics will probably do just about anything within legal limits. So I thought the best way to get a real answer about real-world experiences is to ask real people, so here I am, asking you guys.

WYR [Meta] Please can we ban "WYR {thing} or remain the same"?

1Submitted by Izwe - View comments

I've seen too many of these and they're not what this sub is about. If both choices don't change your life then it's not a WYR, and is better suited to another sub (some of which are linked in the sidebar).

Where have all our state schools gone?

0Submitted by Izwe - View comments

In my area there's not a single secondary school that is not run for-profit. How did our education system become privatised and why isn't there any uproar?

Moving to Orlando, how's Conway?

0Submitted by Izwe - View comments

Good afternoon guys, I've been offered a job in Lake Mary, and I'm looking for an area to rent in. Now I'm a big Disney fan (isn't that a pre-requisite for living in Orlando?) so I'd ideally like to be close to WDW, and I'd be happy with up to a one hour commute (I'm currently commuting 1:30hr).

On my own research I've narrowed it down to the Edgewood/Pine Castle/Conway areas, and looking through previous posts on this subject Conway seems to be nice, but I can't find much on the others, or if I'm missing another area which would suit (I originally was also looking in Pine Hills/Orlovista ... until I read the posts here!). I would be moving with my family, 3 kids ages 9-17.

So my questions are, how's Conway/Edgewood/Pine Castle? Are there any other locations I should investigate? And which areas shoud I avoid?

P.S. I'm from the UK, so I've done the best I can with foreign knowledge, but nothing beats what the locals know!

European Parliament Election - Why does UKIP get a sub heading/slogan?

0Submitted by Izwe - View comments

I just got my postal ballot, and there's eight parties (and one independent) to choose from in the East Midlands. The last party is "UK Independence Party (UKIP)" and underneath the party name, above the list of candidates, it says, "UKIP MAKE BREXIT HAPPEN".

What is this "subtext"? And why are UKIP the only party to have one?

I'd share a photo, but I have no idea if that's legal.

In my council election I can vote for 2 candidates, there are 3 to choose from: 2x Con, 1x LibDem. How is this fair?

I just got my postal vote this morning, it seems bizzare and unfair to me that this is the case. Maybe I should have run for councillor?

Why do KFC shout out my food order instead of the order number on the receipt/screen?

63Submitted by Izwe - View comments

I've been to several franchises and they all do it; is it corporate policy, the staff not being trained to the new system, or just stupidity? Argos have done it right for years, it works, why are they avoiding simplicity?

If after Brexit we rejoin the EU, do you think companies who have quit will return?

0Submitted by Izwe - View comments

Honda, Nissan, etc. will they come back, or will they realise (for example) that Dover is a huge risk to JIT manufacturing, and will just keep their factories on mainland Europe?

Other than Beaches & Cream where is a great place to get ice cream?

Beaches & Cream is closed when we're going to be in WDW this year, and we looove the kitchen sink, does anywhere else do anything similar?

Easiest to install thermostat to use with Alexa?

0Submitted by Izwe - View comments

I want to get my Mum a Smart Thermostat to use with Alexa and although I bought and installed a Nest for myself it was rather complicated to install, I thought the Nest E would be ideal, but it doesn't work with Alexa in Europe (only the US & Canada).

Which devices are you guys (particularly in the UK) rocking and would recommend?

Do I need a doctors appointment to change my name & gender at the GP?

5Submitted by Izwe - View comments

Or can I just talk to reception?

I don't want to waste a doctors appointment (especially at this time of year) for what seems like an administration function.

MtF, any tips on going swimming?

3Submitted by Izwe - View comments

Or to the spa.

I have breast forms, but they need a bra to hold them in, so no good in a pool, body hair can be shaved/waxed away, but what about the man-parts? Is tucking viable in this scenario?
