The MVNHS© continues swirling

Another day, another chapter in the on-going train-wreck we lovingly call the Much Vaunted National Health System©:

"NHS crisis: Patients face delays for vital treatment amid 'staggering increase' in cancelled operations"

Well no wonder. I'm old enough to remember this (from last month):

"Every hospital in the country has been ordered to cancel all non-urgent surgery until at least February in an unprecedented step by NHS officials."

Things (obviously) haven't gotten any better, with the Independent reporting that:

"Nearly 1,000 urgent operations have been cut so far this winter for patients with life-threatening illnesses due to pressures on hospital resources ... It’s unsurprising that urgent operations have come to be cancelled at a greater rate over these years of spending restrictions and increasing demands on services."
No kidding.

But remember kids, national health care schemes are proven to reduce costs and provide excellent, timely care.

Plus: Free!
