It can be good value if you might need specialist, expensive treatment.If you’re a sporting enthusiast, for example, you might want access to specialist private treatment that isn’t available in the NHS – like surgeons and experts who only do private work.At school, on wet days, I could hardly concentrate on lessons, knowing so many of them were hanging in the cloakroom, drying so beautifully.As I have previously implied, I hav9e no doubt at all on the veracity of Stories website.Even if you get private medical insurance, you’ll keep your right to use the NHS.It remains a safety net that will pick up the tab for anything that isn’t covered by your insurance policy.
However, a few girls did have their own way, and I recall a beautiful see-through mac in a vivid emerald green, well worn.
The colour was particularly striking, and was only equalled when Pakamac brought out their new range in 1977. So, there is another piece of waterproof trivia, and there will be more to come.
In the meantime, I will keep searching for those cherished gems from Chadderton....... I have just discovered the site and have very much enjoyed reading all the comments with interest bringing back old memories of when I was taken to get fitted for school rainwear or my sisters .
Despite the wonderful convenience of Pakamacs, I have my eyes on an olive green heavy latex rubber mac, from Weathervain, and this may be my next purchase..for thought...a rubber mac...rubber mac...
The comments are good, but the macs themselves would be even better.
