Unfortunately the NHS is collapsing under the combined weight of demographics, raised expectations, technological advance, inflated bureaucracy, and of course, austerity.
I just wish the focus was on preventative medicine eg instead of a free TV license to the elderly what about a sub to your local health centre? Tax on sugar/proper programs for quitting smoking/subsidies on fruit and vegetables etc etc.
Unfortunately with the cuts in social care the health service is picking up problems it shouldn't be dealing with eg nowhere for the elderly to be supported.
As the police are now in the front line for dealing with mental health issies, because of cuts elsewhere.
It's so shortsighted and cackhanded it makes me
We need "joined up thinking" not crisis management.
Hope it goes well for your hubster
