MVNHS©: Dodging Bullets

With the incoming administration ostensibly Repeal-bound, perhaps we may avoid our own full-blown version of the Much Vaunted National Health System©:

"Nearly a quarter of patients waited longer than four hours at A&E last week with just one hospital hitting its target."

[ed: A&E being "accident and Emergency" care facility]

On top of that, there were almost 20,000 "trolley waits" (how long patients must wait for a hospital bed after being admitted in an emergency) of over 4 hours. The "target" is 4 hour (maximum), but only one hospital even ht that.

But hey, free!
