Skip to comments.Future of Obamacare? UK Man Waits Six Hours for Care as Virus Kills Him
Posted on 06/03/2013 7:15:48 PM PDT by Nachum
With the implementation of Obamacare in full-swing, Americans are worried about the prospects of government-run health care. To see the damage centralized health care can do to patients, Americans need only look across the pond to England.
There, the British government-run health care system which pays for abortions with taxpayer funds and has been criticized for pushing euthanasia is literally leaving patients needing lifesaving medical treatment to die.
The London Daily Mail newspaper profiles Stewart Fleming, whose wife Sarah took a picture on her smartphone as he waited six agonizing hours for medical care and attention for a lethal stomach virus that eventually killed him.
The picture Sarah Fleming took of her husband Stewart is one that will haunt her for ever.

Sounds like they just brutally played the odds. Hey mister it’s only a virus, you gotta wait.

Man's appendix ruptures a month after it was 'removed' in hospital ...

Mark Wattson, from Swindon, Wilts, had two appendectomies in a month after doctors failed to remove the appendix at the first attempt.
He claims that he lost his job because his employers did not believe that he needed to have the operation twice.
Mr Wattson, 35, had his first appendectomy on Tuesday, July 7, after being told that his appendix was the cause of abdominal pain he had suffered for several months.
He said that doctors informed him that the procedure had gone well. He was discharged the next day.
Yet a month later, Mr Wattson was taken to hospital after collapsing in Swindon town centre.
He was told by doctors at Great Western Hospital where his original operation had taken place that his appendix had burst and that he needed an emergency appendectomy.

it’s good if you pay for it. i had to use it once. minimal wait as well.
if you’re using socialist care, not so good.
As a Brit, I commented on this story when it broke on FR.
And it wasnt quite as clearcut as claimed. For starters, there is only evidence that two ops were cancelled, not four.
The NHS records which the Trust provided to the British press, showed two ops. The first was cancelled because of the man’s dangerously high blood pressure, the second because he refused to give up smoking and his BP was still far too high to risk an operation.
The benefit refusal was absolutely ridiculous (if true), but that isnt the NHS’s fault.
Yes, because all British people have bad teeth. Do you tell all Indians they smell of curry and all black people they have thick lips and frizzy hair?.
I doubt you have ever even been to the UK. It might astound you to know that millions of us Brits have great teeth.
