Default Record 4.4M Britons waiting for non-urgent surgery, gov't figures show

You know what's sad?...When you see reports like this and STILL hear people say, "Let's have that in America!"...

Record 4.4M Britons waiting for non-urgent surgery, gov't figures show

Quote:
Britain's national healthcare system said Thursday a record 4.4 million Britons are waiting for surgery -- a figure one medical leader called "unacceptable."

New statistics posted by the National Health Service also showed a 16 percent increase of patients who'd waited for more than 18 weeks for non-emergency operations, such as hip or knee replacements.

The NHS figures showed 233,000 Britons had waited for more than six months and 37,000 more than nine months.
