Maybe we should only spend money on working, contributing, healthy, young individuals? Unemployed people get no healthcare? People that can't procreate get no healthcare? Where is the cutoff?

That means the place is about a mile away
That does seem a little insane, the closest hospital or doctor to me is 40 km away. About a half hour drive.
The closest hospital that actually does any type of major surgery is at least 250 km away. Over a 2 hour drive.
The hospital that does most of the surgeries in this province is about 400 km away. Over a 4 hour drive.
I realize the UK is a lot smaller than Canada, but still.....
How is it possible that there are that many doctor`s offices there
Indeed. When I had first read the headline I misunderstood and thought the woman had been banned from a needed surgical procedure. Your post cleared everything up for me and taught me something new.
