Another reason to not want government control of health care

Daily Mail Seriously ill patients are being kept in ambulances outside hospitals for

up to FIVE
hours so NHS trusts do not miss Government targets.
If he government was not the sole payer, it cou;d not justify this.
Thousands of people a year are having to wait outside accident and emergency departments because trusts will not let them in until they can treat them within four hours, in line with a Labour pledge. The hold-ups mean ambulances are not available to answer fresh 999 calls
