Heres the UK

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/3749801.stm

Heres Canada
Province of British Columbia - Media Site - Provincial Median Wait Times
Ontario Wait Times Strategy : Introduction
Wait Times - Surgical Wait Times in New Brunswick
Wait Times Data | Nova Scotia Wait Times | Government of Nova Scotia

The thought of waiting a month or more for something as simple as an Xray or MRI scares the **** out of me

Here's a good one.... A friend of mine has a brother-in-law with a preliminary diagnosis of a possible brain tumor.
Wait time for a CT scan: six months.

Yes its true. X-rays are right away, same day. But minor day surgery is a minimum of six months. "Free" health care is alright, but the people who abuse the right for a common cold ruin it for those who seriously need medical attention. You would be alarmed at the amount of people sitting in the emergency room with sore throats.

It really is deathcare.
