MrPVRd said:I went to the docs today, in search of an appointment with an orthopaedic specialist (bad knees).
I got the usual story....well, there's a bit of a wait, a few months....
Then I revealed I had occupational private health insurance.
What a difference! It was like saying the magic word, or giving the secret handshake. In a jiffy, the doc had pulled out the BUPA directory and was pointing out specialists, suggesting I phoned myself to arrange a convenient consultation in a week or two.
So much for universal free health care. The NHS is in terminal decline.
A few months - better than one and a half years
