Default Re: What is happening

Kugai's hospital put-off is a local problem Dragon Fan. It is getting a lot of publicity at the moment because we are in the middle of an election campaign. Our main medical system is state-funded and funding in the present administration has not kept up with the demand. The result has been that if there is a big car accident or something like that, or a hospital full of emergency 'flu patients, people who are having "elective" surgery can be put off and told to go home, even if they've already been prepped for their operation. It happened to an adopted member of our family three times, the "elective" (a political definition meaning anything that is not an accident) surgery in question being an emergency heart operation. He did eventually get it.
