In hospital waiting times in the UK, with some 40,000 something patients waiting more than 12 months.

Delays in Cancer treatments have been improved, but hips, knees and other "non urgent" conditions still leave people languishing.

This can be even worse than it sounds, as it might be 12 months to see the specialist, and then god knows how long to be treated after that.



.................


UK on Covid ....

Sounds  a lot like those  'so-called' 3rd World countries.
smh.


You are absolutely right, it is pathetic.

My 77 year old father started getting out of breath around Halloween.  He felt a flutter in his heart.  He made an appointment with his doctor and saw him the next day.  He scheduled a heart scope which was done this morning.  Sadly, he has some serious blockage.  They will need to take a vein from his leg and graft it on his heart.  That will happen next Thursday.  He is on Medicaid so it won't cost him a cent.

This is how the horrible, terrible, US medical system works.   But hey, let the Brits look down their long noses at us.

For the record, I'd rather have my local veterinarian cut on me than a Cuban.


Regrettably the time frame is too short. Otherwise a very high fibre diet with no carbs, grass fed, and not finished in the feed lot meat, and no GMO shit and he would have circulation recovered to healthy levels in 60 - 90 days.

Or you can eat the same old same old crap, and have chunks chopped out of your leg. While the condition is not Genetic, it may be hereditary, because if you eat and do the same things he did you are very likely to get the same outcome.

It may take you the 20 years for the penny to drop, but eventually you will say... You know that old bastard was right after all.

Re: 12 year high

I should have had dad talk to you instead of a cardiologist.  I mean, what do they know?

You know, you are a Trump supporter type and don't know it.  Trump's brand of populism is based on anti-intellectual, anti-expertise and the notion that the learned elite and all experts should be distrusted.  Trump always doubts the experts on everything.  He believes everything is a conspiracy.  He argues the "deep state" is working against the common man.  He believes that the global elite are killing people for a buck.

You know, just like you.

Re: 12 year high

I spoke too soon.  He was told today his surgery is on hold due to the explosion of Covid cases here.  The hospitals near me are fuller than they have been since this shit-show started.

Re: 12 year high

It's a common theme all around.
The guard went up in the spring, then came down during the summer.
The problem now is that no one is willing to put that guard back up when we most need it.
