Waiting Times for British Healthcare Subscribers

Think socialized medicine would be great?  Here are the 2004 wait times as published by the BBC on 5/27/09.

Cataract Surgery:                                                8 months

Knee replacement Surgery:                           12 months

Hip Replacement Surgery:                             11 months

Slipped Disc Surgery:                                         5  months

Hernia Repair:                                                      5  months

I don’t know about you, but “Take 2 pills and call me in 5 months” is not my idea of quality healthcare.

Here’s another thing to think about: if you have to wait 12 months for knee replacement and can’t work, meaning no paycheck, is your free healthcare really free?  Read the last entry on the tele-town halls!  Let’s get involved and derail this train before it derails our country!
