Refer above, nobody waited 7 years.Ah, so it's all because of competition and the high rate of acceptance of the NHS.
Waiting 7 years is never acceptable.
Can you list a country as an example? Britain is experiencing strong consistent growth in private healthcare.It also forces competition out - meaning there are less doctors and less private places to go to, meaning that demand increases while supply dwindles and government artificially deflates prices, running private hospitals and insurance out. Not a good motivation for attracting talented medical workers and surgeons.
Yes, like your FORCED to pay any other tax which funds something you benefit from. Welcome to the modern world.FORCED to pay the health tax you mean --- and I find it insane to call my government to get a medical referral. Do I also call my plumber to procure a referral to a good bank? This might work in down-trodden and government soaked Europe but there will be riots if this is how it works in the U.S.
Here, you dont call a government referral, you call a GP.
It doesnt take that long to get a GP, it takes that long to get the surgery. You can get a diagnosis within days. You have to remember that not everybody can afford such medical treatment that the private sector offers, hence the 10's of millions of Americans without healthcare. Those who cannot afford such expensive surgery will have to wait at most a year or so depending on what the surgery is, but they recieve the treatment and walk away with their lives.Whew... let's hope it's not cancer then eh? Or heart disease... or mini strokes... maybe this is one of those secondary benefits under the moniker of "population control". I can get a GP today, within a few hours... why the hell would anyone want to wait 18 months? What ****ing planet are people living on that they accept this?
How about if you dont have that option? Dont just think about yourself.Well thank God for the steady stream of morphine... a few years on morphine is much better than getting the problem taken care of within a month don't you think?
Your GP.Again, who makes this determination of "who needs life saving surgery"? And it sounds like - if the UHC cannot handle it, the financial burden goes back on the individual anyway which is what the U.S. has now.. so what the hell am I benefiting again? Let's recap:
No point in answering the other questions, just going in circles.
