Do you expect government-run medicine to be different from the Dept. of Motor Vehicles? Welcome to Socialized Medicine.
A 94-year-old grandmother died after NHS medics sent her home because she was ‘too old’ for an operation on a varicose vein.
She bled to death when that vein (really a lump) ruptured and paramedics could not get to her in time.
Last November, Lancashire Police were asked by Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to investigate alleged incidents in their stroke unit.
Why people think putting the .gov in charge of health care is a good idea is beyond me.
