What a horrendous situation, and how potentially damaging to those patients

I didn't have private cover in the UK so if I'd needed to use it, it would have been NHS all the way, so good to hear that anything here in Switzerland would still be a vast step up
It's grim up North... Or down South from your point of view, IIRC. It was quite a shock for me to see people in actual beds stood right next to the doors leading from the A&E area to the wards. Or waiting six hours to have an injury sutured. Sure, it was not serious, triage is normal, but even with a triage system, the most I've waited at any emergency medical service (including walk-in clinics) was maybe two hours.
