Continued Meltdown of UK National Health Service

The NHS is continuing to disintegrate. Now, it is intentionally delaying surgery as a way of husbanding resources. From the story in the Telegraph: “‘Minimum waiting times’ have been imposed by at least 43 per cent of Acute NHS Trusts, a survey for Channel 4’s Dispatches programme found.

Can you imagine needing your whatzit removed and having to wait until the NHS allows doctors to get around to it? What a disaster.
