Socialized medicine works really, Really well

Tower care home, Edinburgh. The Scottish Conservatives said councils were failing too many of the most vulnerable elderly by not providing the free care they were expected to by law.

Elderly on waiting lists for free care in nearly half of councils

  • Half Scotland's councils operating waiting list for care homes
  • Statistic is damaging to Exercutive's flagship policyof free care
  • £140 million cost represents 0.6 per cent of Executive £25 billion budget

"It was a flagship policy of the parliament and Executive and it's the envy of older people throughout the UK. It's something that Scotland should be proud of, but it is time to sort out these teething problems."- HELP THE AGED SPOKESMAN

Uh, huhhh.
