1. It's complicated

But the standard for care is 62 days for a cancer treatment to start. That's theory.

In contrast 10 years ago my wife found a lump, 48 hours later she was receiving her first treatment. Dental care is even worse.

People won't put up with the long delays and crappy care here.

Here's all the brutal stats on NHS performance.
