Hospitals aren't tied up at Pompey for lack of staff, the simply draft in new crews from the Phillipines and as Jarrod points out omit to check their quals too closely in case the names are all the same.
Hospitals aren't sold for scrap or to Brazil after 30 years, often for a fraction of their costs.
Hospitals aren't stored in WFM (left to rot) and doctors ride around dispensing leeches (the medical equivalent of mounted troops) as there is no money. The NHS is operating 7 days a week (well most of it anyway) and doesn't often need to lock up staff on weekends or nights for drunken fighting down town.
The NHS is good and the forces kill people.
Frankly we aren't a first tier country anymore, we could just about bluff most small African despots into surrendering but thats about it.
You were saying?
Realism is everything!
