Getting a normal doctor's appointment was hard enough before the pandemic, for the last few years it's been almost impossible. You either get a 1 hour timeslot to try and ring, or spend 20 minutes filling out an online form so that someone might ring you back in a few weeks. Although the whole thing is so political it's like a quasi-religion that cannot be criticised, no politician has the balls to make the changes it needs, and NHS in crisis headlines are a winter tradition from left-leaning media
it definitely depends on your GP, mind - I found a mole on my back a couple of months ago and contacted my GP's surgery through https://askmygp.uk/
My GP contacted me in minutes and offered me an appointment for the same day. Got photos taken and sent off to a dermatologist and got a letter in a couple of days' time giving me the all clear.
A year ago I needed antibiotics and, rather than see my GP face to face, he phoned me back, diagnosed the issue and contacted my local pharmacy and minutes later I picked up the prescription from them.
Mates of mine, however, not living in the same area as me, have reported having to wait a few days to see their GP - it varies a lot

Not going to lie, in 2019 I would have guessed he sold out by becoming a food reviewer between Jimquisitions to justify his eating habits WELL before he joined the Skittle Cult.
Imagine a world where he calls out other food reviewers as sexists or whatever the cult's drinking. I would love to see all the fatties telling him to stfu

Unpopular as this might be, I really think the NHS needs to jettison any non-essential treatment if it's to have a hope of survival. This will make me sound like a heartless bitch, but things like IVF are not a necessity and really shouldn't be taxpayer funded. I would much rather that money get diverted to funding better therapies and screening for things like cancer and other life-threatening and life-limiting coconditions.
This is self evident. Back in the 50s and 60s it made sense, make sure everyone can go to a GP and get a broken bone fixed. But this model has not scaled at all with the complexity, expense and supply of medical technology. How could it possibly? So many more surgeries and treatments are available now, many excruciatingly expensive. Non essential treatments need to be jettisoned entirely from the programme. Maybe things like xrays or complicated diagnostics could exist in some hybrid model.

The NHS works exactly as intended: as a Medical Industrial Complex. Westminster cannot be seen to be spending tax money to prop up Britsh businesses, but it can dump £150Bn a year into hospitals that then outsource all manner of services to local contractors. It's why everything is tendered so expensively. Take the staff timeclock hand scanners, for example. There's £30 worth of electronics per unit, if that. Yet 10 units cost £100,000 and then the Hospital Trust pays the same again annually for the Allocate software centralised timetable service on top. It's a little subsidy for the British equivalent of Silicon Valley. Put a thousand or so little subsidies together and you have a World Class unfair economic advantage but can't be called out on it.

The glorious Americans went down the aerospace/military excuse route, we went down the healthcare excuse one, and both of us found new ways to splash public money over Political WAGS and failing start ups with the Prison Industrial Complex and the Refugee Industrial Complex.

As for Big Steffy Gendercrash making his defiant comeback to Albion, he's going to hate it here now. Public opinion about trannies has almost completely turned. You might as well come out as a child molestor and be done with it. Funnily enough we can probably thank covid for that; all the mums had too much free time on their hands and they quietly became terfs by social media overdose.

Still haven't stitched together why he'd go back to Brexitland. Not sold on it being medical treatment, Jim is ridiculously overpaid for the work he does do, and could afford all the private dick removal he wants in murrica, and private practices can do wild shit the UK wouldn't even let fly on the pharmaceutical side. S'not like he went for the politics, with Britain seeing a conservative populist movement like the US. My only guess would be pursuing another ill-fated romance like his green card marriage.
I reckon its the wrestling shit. Its very clear that the amateur wrestling is a passion project of his and if he's willing to do it as an incredibly unfit and unhealthy 38 year old then moving just to play to a handful of people in an old office space isn't too out there.

I know we all wanna circlejerk about how the people the impovrished people in the US who just live with broken bones so they can feed their children are a european psyop so their citizens don't question their income tax rate and 6month wait on tranny surgery.

But maybe we circle back to jim.
He made an oopsie in his last video saying "sex workers are not valued even though their value cannot be understated enough" which i found funny.

It's the old NHS vs American system fallacy that the public are fed, and they eat it up. Why we can't go for a middle ground like whatever it is they do in other European countries is fucking beyond me.

I've been quite lucky with the NHS so far in my life despite living in one of the worst parts of the UK for it, but I'm relatively healthy all things considered. For now.

Unpopular as this might be, I really think the NHS needs to jettison any non-essential treatment if it's to have a hope of survival. This will make me sound like a heartless bitch, but things like IVF are not a necessity and really shouldn't be taxpayer funded. I would much rather that money get diverted to funding better therapies and screening for things like cancer and other life-threatening and life-limiting conditions.

There's also the aspect of collective responsibility. The UK wants socialised medicine but not the collective responsibility of staying as healthy as possible to go with it.

(Edit to fix typo)
I just want to add that the problem on the debate is that it's apples and oranges as a public USA health system will almost immediately collapse just by how much the American lifestyle is unhealthy (coupled with entire population who are a health hazard in multiple ways). Though Europe and the UK does make the apples appear more orange (oranger?) each year by importing their own brand of unhealthy slaves who are clogging up the health system.

I'll admit I've not had to rely on the NHS for mental health but they saved my life when I was a kid and needed an emergency full blood transfusion. I remember when I broke my foot a few years ago, I got a full 3D CAT scan of the foot, showing me where the break was, and got it all secured within around 45 minutes. My dad had a knee replacement a couple of months ago and the service was exemplary. My mam died of cancer a few years ago and, once again, the nurses and doctors couldn't have helped more (they did offer mental health support for me and my dad at the time but we both declined). They made my mam as comfortable as possible to the end, once the chemo and radiotherapy proved to not be enough to cure her - the original diagnosis was that she had 6 months max but she survived for 18.
I fucking love the NHS for these reasons and just wish the government supported them more.
Quick explanation to Americans. The Nation Health Sevice (NHS) is the state religion in the U.K.

Five times a day we roll out prayer mats and pray in the direction of the local hospital.

Criticising the NHS is haram and if anyone mentions it all the British faithful have to state their gratitude towards it.

It is prophesied that one day Nye Bevan (Peace Be Upon Him) will return and reign forever separating the righteous lefties from the evil sick Tories.

lmao. Imagine, in an effort to say we don't appreciate sex workers, that you accidentally say they cannot have value because your brain is so fried from sex and drugs that you confuse "understated" with "understood"

Of course, maybe he mistook a little red pill for one of his titty skittles or the countless other drugs he takes.

The sad thing is that I just know that even though Bobby Kotick is more than likely going to be fired, Sterling is gonna find some way to be salty at how this transpired. Either it's gonna be "gOlDeN PaRaChUtE" or "mIcRoSoFt iS EvIl tHo". It's just the way his show works nowadays.

While I don't think prostitution should be illegal, I am firmly on the side of legalization and taxation as an insane and evil socialist I believe in taxing every industry possible to provide funding for social programs... While also putting an expiration date on the welfare of anyone without a solid medical reason to not be working (also to power level and bitch about welfare here in Canada, I used to be on the system, I love we have it, it really saved me from homelessness, but my greatest three months of financial troubles in my life were after my income crashed after getting a job, therefore losing welfare, and before I could get enough hours and work to surpass the welfare income I had I almost went under and lost my home because I became a contributing member of society, the system needs fixing, as that is a huge deterrent to not be a leech).

But to return to the topic at hand, I never understood troons obsession with "sex work". I do believe it's a legitimate industry (that we should be taxing the fuck out of), but I don't see the inherent connection to anything you can connect to transrights without looking like a coomer pervert.

Lots of sexual minorities make their rent money by degrading themselves infront of a webcam because they are generally such thoroughly broken people that any family they may have can't or won't deal with them.

They also basically live in a distriubted coomer commune where they pay eachother n get paid, (with cash injections from coomer simps for porn) growing the net resources of the system.

Essentially just as they revere sex work because for those whom this is an identity it is both sacramemtal and economically l mandatory. They also hate the people who remove resources from their system (landlords, grocery stores, influentialy terfs, the usual evemies of commies)

If you look I'm sure there are some decent essays on here about this topic.

I think the obsession is simple: getting paid to have sex when you're a horny malcontent must be a dream come true. If Jim could make an equal amount of money as a prostitute...

He wouldn't. I actually think that's one line he won't cross. Not out of moral boundaries. Not out of self-respect. But out of depressing soberness on how short-lived it'd be. He hates doing the Jimquisition, hates video games, and most certainly hates his audience, but he knows how stable slowly sinking this ship is. He can do this for as long as he can get simp bucks on Paymetons. Unlike his current job, being a sex worker requires him to have something to offer, to be able to physically move, and to engage on the payer's part. And even people with a trans fetish (Humanity is hopeless) will probably not go for Jimbo since there are several people who pass better while being able to do things I refuse to type out or think about without throwing out their back.

Jim is worthless as a game's commentator but as a prostitute? He'd be indisputably worthless. Now pardon me as I forget I typed any of this just to be sure no mental images reach me at night.

Jim'll have to hire a civil engineer to locate suitable load bearing structures first. Now he's back in Blighty he doesn't have easy access to shooters, either. He doesn't have the endurance to climb to the top of a tower and roll off. If he ran out into traffic he'd end up damaging the buses. He's entirely resistant to heroin overdosing, too.
He's pretty much knackered himself for self-termination.
