Once they actually get them off the trolley in the corridor.
The NHS isn't great, but it's free (Well we do pay taxes)
They have some of the best doctors in the World, however they have so much to do because there are so many ill.
Some hospitals are better than others. The one near Big Ben was superb. Maybe because it's in a wealthy area.
I collapsed for 30 minutes after running 8 miles once and they did a great job. I didn't eat, and had heat stroke, severe dehydration and had no sugar in my system. It was my own fault for running from 5 miles on when I kept seeing grey. Never fainted before so now I know when to stop. I ran up to 18 miles so it wasn't because I was unfit, but because I stupidly didn't eat food or drink for nearly 24 hours and had diarrhoea.
