Seems like in the US the average wait time is 7 minutes, though longer in rural areas.

As I suspected the NHS triages everything to an inch of its life, that matches my experiences. If they deem your condition serious then you are supposed to get seen within... 7 minutes.

They do seem to have problems hitting those targets though - and 2 hours seems very much an exception. I get all the luck...

Jagger traveled to USA to have his heart valve replacement. 3 days wait was it? Probably takes about that long for the doctors to plan such a complicated surgery. Multiple scans and whatnot. Analysis. Very carefully planned and done.

Well someone screwed up with that two hour wait I think. They certainly missed all their targets by a country mile.

I must confess I had other things on my mind at the time and it was all a blur but looking back on it yeah.

Pretty impressive clarity on the pic...

It's getting smaller apparently though so that's actually a good news pic.

I am very glad to hear that the tumor is shrinking.

I don't recommend brain removal. I haven't been the same since mine.

The picture is just awful. But if the tumour is not winning, that is a good news.

And I am not so much worried about you yet, you have not changed to a remoaner. ;)

Take care.

Well that is some good news for the Bank Holiday weekend. Take care mate.
