Well first of all you can forget about paying for it yourself. Their are rules against paying for any medical care out of your own pocket, you see that wouldn't be fair to those that can't afford it. Yes you would see a nurse, that's how things work in the UK I know, my husband is a Brit. When we got married I insisted he see my GP for a physical. He had prostate cancer! No one had ever ordered a PSA test for him in the UK. When he had surgery in 2000 before he moved here, he was in a ward to recover with 8 people in it, no private room for him. The UK has been adopting private health insurance. Go figure that the Brits want what the kind of healthcare that we have here.
