Just to annoy you Stuart, doctors (GPs) get extra payments for working out here in bandit country. Mind you, to get to see my specialist, I travel 17 miles to the ferry port, 50 minutes on the ferry, then 90 or so miles to the hospital in Glasgow. The patients work harder than the doctors!

Even I have to travel and I live in, relative , civilisation.

The round trip to Liverpool by car takes, on a good day, 3 1/2hrs.

I live a good 20 minute walk from hospital, it's up hill all the way :D :D
When I broke a bone in my neck, I walked there from GP surgery :shock: quicker than ambulance.
When I was taken there by ambulance during severe AP, I'm positive they went over every speed bump, pothole and unsurfaced road and on the way back home a month later, Dave took the same route.

I think the government are sneaky little snips, Jeremy Hunt is acting just like Thatcher during miners strike, and look how that ended. If this isn't about making the NHS more attractive for privatisation, I'll eat my words, or doctors will win (EU vote might straighten things out) and it was thus all along.

Dave has worked in the rail industry since he was 16, when it was privatised, he took redundancy, left work on a Friday (with most of his office doing the same). He was back at work with private company on the Monday for double the money though private company still made profits. Government learnt how to fiddle the stats and we all ended up paying more.
Dave retired on his full pension aged 50 as he found rather than extra money he could have shares and more pension.
