"There Are Rules, You Know...."

In the land formerly called "Great" Britain, socialized medicine has rules.

They are immutable.

A student lay dying from an asthma attack outside a hospital after A&E [accident & emergency] staff refused to summon help, telling her friend to ring for an ambulance instead.

...One of Miss Davis's friends ran 150 yards into the A&E department and asked a receptionist to summon help.

She was told she would have to dial 999 for an ambulance if she wanted emergency treatment.The staff member refused to place the call and told the friend to use a phone in the reception area.

The girl is dead now.

Hey, but at least it's a "fair" and "free" health care system! /sarcasm
