I have to say that I have nothing but praise for the NHS who dealt with my two cancer diagnoses instantly, Immediate scans to confirm diagnosis and then surgery. In both cases the consultants remarked that I was so lucky to have early diagnosis, cancers were removed and no further treatment required. I now have three monthly scans and reviews
With urgent serious cases like mine the NHS has been superb, I think the problem is the endless queues of people demanding treatment for "trivial" conditions that any pharmacist could help them on. This plus bed blocking from patients who get free hospital care for relatives that could be treated with home care bu the family would have to pay for, and those who doctors seem reluctant to discharge.
