Conservative Health Care?
Having just come back from the U.K., it is very evident that its new conservative government is trying to steer its National Health System toward the U.S. style. Yet here, Obamacare is trying to emulate the NHS of the U.K.
Our friend in Scotland, after waiting four months for a sinus operation, was told to report to the hospital (some 80 miles away) at 6:15 a.m. Most operations here do not start until 9 a.m. unless it is an emergency. She was to be the second patient to be operated on. The operation started after 1 p.m.
Upon awaking from anesthesia, she found herself in a 16-bed ward with six women, and next to her bed, a man in his bed. This co-ed ward was a very popular idea of the liberals some four to five years ago, as it utilized beds and wards more efficiently but was disliked by many patients as they shared a single bathroom per ward. The conservatives have stated they will stop this practice. Still to this day in the U.K., they are building 24-bed wards but with more bathrooms.
