Yeah, the Emergency Department of a hospital in my area has one. They refer to it as the "mobile Neurologist".

"The 18-week referral to treatment pathway is about improving
patients’ experience of the NHS - ensuring all patients receive high
quality elective care without any unnecessary delay. The term ‘18
weeks’ applies to pathways that do or might involve consultant-led
care, setting a maximum time of 18 weeks from the point of initial
referral up to the start of any treatment necessary for all patients,
where it is clinically appropriate and where patients consent to it."

I understand that you think waiting 18 weeks is an improvement (vs 6 to 18 months as you have been accustomed to), but under normal circumstances it would be very rare and mind boggling for anyone here to wait that long for a surgery elective or not.

I think socialized medicine does (for the most part) work in SMALLER populations. The reason police departments, fire departments, libraries, etc. work is because they are LOCALLY operated. The police department in my city doesn`t have the same rules and policies (other than state laws) as another city because what works here doesn`t necessarily work somewhere else.

The United States is such a populous and diverse country that creating an over arching federal system that directly effects an individual can`t work because what is best for one isn`t necessarily best for all.

Also, there are some extremely greedy people in the US that love getting something for nothing. To paraphrase someone that was interviewed when Obama was elected "I`m going to get me some of that Obama money" "Do you know where it comes from?" "His stash". It is people like that which make socialism not work because they believe that because they didn`t pay for it, it i

</Rant> Mandatory healthcare in France seems ok. Canada (except BC) is pretty broken compared to ours. And yes I have first hand knowledge. I have seen a elderly woman wait 9 months to get a bone spur removed from her foot because of waiting lists(Ontario). I Have seen kids waiting months to see a specialist in the Maritime Provences(who would have waited maybe days in a crappy urban public hospital). The UK`s NHS is great in some cases and absolutely scary in others. They use Trusts which can be ever worse than corporations when it comes to decisions. It is also going broke and driving elite doctors elsewhere. For ours being imperfect it`s not as bad as it is made out to be compared to the (most) of the rest of the world. That 32 ranking means nothing except to the authors.

I think the big loss here is the primtime cereal shows based on hospitals. I mean would ER or Scrubs be a bunch of 22" Samsung Monitors running around perched on top of a RF monster truck

Sounds like the situation in the US is a win-win for large health insurance companies?

@auburnjunky isn`t this what happens then regardless of whether it`s the new or old system:

90 year old woman: I fell and broke my hip! Replace it!

Hospital: Oh that`s a very expensive procedure, I hope you have a good health insurance provider.

Old Lady: No, I don`t.

Hospital: Okay then that`ll be $45,000.

Old Lady: Oh dear, I can`t afford that.

Hospital: Okay then here`s a prescription for pain killers. They`ll only cost you $100 a month.

Old Lady: Oh but I`m on a pension, I can`t afford that.

Hospital: Well I`m sorry then, that`s all we can do for you. Oh, before I forget, here`s your $1000 invoice for our consultation services. Have a nice day! :-)

Could those of you in the UK please explain to us in the US what the "18 week pathway is"?

@sssfdg:

Schools are drated in the US because they are governed by the US Department of Education, not by the states.

US health care won`t be like those other systems. It will be some drated up bastard child of them.

I don`t understand how this has anything to do with health care let alone soliciazed healthcare.
And the system does work... look at some of the top countries to live in in the world. Norway, Canada, Sweden, England, France... all in the top 20 countries to live in .... all have solicized health care.... now look at the USA.... number 32!!!
There is nothing wrong with solicialized healthcare... just like there is nothing wrong with solicialized mail/post, library, highways, and schools... (well the schools are drated in the USA, but you can thank the Texas Christian school board for that!!! bastards)

auburnjunky, your comment about pumping people with painkillers oppsed to a hip operation is completely redundant, i live in the uk, and as im sure you know we have the nhs, my nans just had a knee operation and not only was it done brilliantly its also titanium, not plastic which makes it better and more expensive.

the reason social healthcare works well is because it spreads the cost, not everyone goes running to the hosptal over every little thing! plus bupa exists which is a private healthcare company so people still have the option of what you seem to prefer doing now in america, just with something to fall back on and the use of other services the nhs supply such as psychiactric help and acces to healthcare abroad for carrying a card, yes its not perfect but not many things can be perfect private or not when it comes to people and their health, change is scary but dont mock it til you try it.

"Also, to expand on deeplick`s point, and further explain mine:

What happens when the system is almost bankrupt because EVERYONE will be going to the hospital for a hangnail, but not paying for insurance; which causes the system to LOSE MONEY.

I`ll tell you what, RATIONED HEALTH CARE.

90 year old woman: I fell and broke my hip! Replace it!

Hospital: No that`s too expensive. Here`s lots and lots of pain killers."

Canada doesn`t have that problem.

@tedgp do you even know what the health care reform in the USA does? NOTHING. It forces you to buy health care, like you are forced to buy car insurance. People spouting about how it would give everyone a good health care system for free. Wrong, i work at a hospital and get calls DAILY from idiots wanting to know why they can`t get free health care. BECAUSE IT WAS NEVER PROMISED. All the bill does is force people to buy it, or face the consequence of not buying it. Yeah that is such a better system then what we already had!

"im just guessing here, i could be wrong, her heartbeat isnt going to be in her kidney mt robot, and he would kinda have to be present to hear it"


I, too could be guessing, but you can use a stethoscope to listen for sounds other than a heartbeat and one does not have to be present to hear said sounds that can be transmitted. eg: phones, radio

No auburn. that would be what happened BEFORE socialized health care. When you have a system that lets companies/corporations decide who should get treatment, then you have a huge problem.
