of course that's kind of how capitalists work
They keep cutting funds to critical service until they say it is borked and then sell it off, which is what you see happening at the moment. The nhs is pretty criticially underfunded. It's no surprise i have to wait so long
I'd still take it over what I have here though. The NHS ain't perfect but at least there my dad isn't being price-gouged for insulin he needs to Not Die.
