At the end of the queue they determine what kind of medical care you need and then you go to a waiting room or what-not. He said those people standing in a queue can be there with a broken arm or bleeding finger or worse. And oftentimes they will wait in that queue for hours!
Also, one of his callers responded to that account with his own account saying that his father, in London, was sick and so they called a doctor. They had to wait four days for a doctor to make a housecall and determine if he should be admitted to a hospital. His father was admitted and went to a giant ward that reminded him of the 1920's. There were so many people and too few staff that his father never saw anyone after being admitted. The caller finally said that he withdrew his father from the ward and flew him to the U.S. to receive real health care.
