OH, WHAT YOU'RE MISSING:

Shocking rise in patient waiting (ALISON HARDIE, 3/11/05, The Scotsman)

THE number of people in Scotland waiting more than a year to see a hospital consultant soared from 885 six years ago to 7,679 by the end of last year.

Above and beyond the $2 billion Es they're already pouring in.

Freedom and Whisky keeps tabs on Scotland.

I keep a file on this stuff, just itching for an NHS discussion.
