MVNHS©: Cold and Dead

Fresh off killing young cancer victims, the Much Vaunted National Health Service© continues illustrating the deadly consequences of government-run "health care."

The cold:

"A retired schoolmaster took his own pillows and duvet into a new £170million hospital wing because he was so shocked by the conditions in which his son was being treated."

William Handy (no relation), under treatment for a stomach issue, was found "shivering under blood-stained sheets." When his father complained, he was told that cleaners had "refused to come in because they feared catching an infection."

An infection? At a hospital? Really?

There was also trash on the floor, which the alleged cleaners also refused to handle.

But Mr Handy was the lucky one.

The dead:

"A young mother died from a heart condition after doctors repeatedly told her she only had heartburn when she complained of severe chest pains."

The 28-year old, Gemma Jones, had been seen by various minions of the MVNHS© providers over several months. Each time, she was brushed off, even though a simple (and inexpensive) test could have immediately shown the problem.

Good thing she didn't have to worry about blood-stained sheets, though.

But those are just one-offs, right?


Not so fast:

"Britain is suffering from an exodus of doctors ... [MVNHS©] is suffering a 'brain drain' of doctors as more medics trained at taxpayers' expense choose to pursue their careers overseas."

And why not? As we've seen above, British medical "facilities" are a disgrace, pay is low, and there's no incentive or reward to excel.

Good thing that can't happen here, though.
