@MeGrendel: "when my GP referes me"; "My wait is no weeks."

A) No one is saying our system doesn't work for some, you happen to be one of the lucky ones. B) Nearly 20% of Americans wait more than 6 days just to see a doctor.

chalket-"This is specifically when your GP refers you for non-emergency hospital treatment."

Well, when my GP referes me for non-emergency hospital treatment, I go directly to the hospital.

chalket-"actual wait averages 4 weeks"

My wait is no weeks.

Also I've heard you`re starting to have a shortage of dentist, as more and more dentists are only accepting private patients.

Ain't it cute that OldOllie thinks quoting a former National Lampoon editor means something! I`m sure the author of "How to Drive Fast on Drugs While Getting Your Wing-Wang Squeezed and Not Spill Your Drink" MUST have some amazing insights, right?

By the way, the founding fathers SUPPORTED government health care AND the individual mandate. Look up 1798`s "An act for the relief of sick and disabled seamen" which authorized the creation of a government-operated marine hospital service and MANDATED that privately-employed sailors be required to purchase health care insurance. There was no debate as to "the founding father`s intentions," these WERE the founding fathers!

@MeGrendel: "You have the right to start your consultant-led treatment within a maximum of 18 weeks from referral"

This is specifically when your GP refers you for non-emergency hospital treatment (the actual wait averages 4 weeks). However, you can visit your GP anytime you like, with or without an appointment and most areas have GP-led health centres offering walkin service 8am-8pm, seven days a week. (that's also from their website)
