I was sent some info about finding medical attention over Xmas.You put your postcode in a box and then a list comes up.However some of the places even though only 9 miles away would take 2 hours to reach on public transport.Because,i assume the computer is not programmed to take into account that travelling 9 miles across London is different from 9 miles in a small town or country area.
Even in a cab it would take over an hour to get to these places and the cost would be very high.
They assume that one mile in one town is the same as one mile in another.Or, imagine one mile ascending Great Gable if an urgent care centre or drop in NHS clinic located on the top.Then you might see a strange headline in the newspaper
WOMAN DIES ONLY 1 MILE FROM NEW FULLY EQUIPPED WALK IN CENTRE
Doctors at the new clinic expressed regret and another
spokesperson labelled the woman as
LAZY,IDLE STUPID AND LIVING ON BENEFITS [AND DYING TOO]
There are no buses in Cumbria but surely walking one mile is not too much to expect of the lower orders.The upper orders can use helicopters.Though they will have private care
The Prime Minister wondered why she did not get on her bike like Norman Tebbit advised the work shy.
