Hurry up and wait, for medical care in Spain:
MADRID — One out of every 100 people in Spain is on a state hospital waiting list for surgery, the government said on Thursday.
....The figure is nearly the same as two years ago, showing that nothing has improved despite promises to cut delays from the government.
And other figures show the situation is getting worse.
The average waiting time has gone from 81 days to 83 days.
The percentage of people who wait six months or longer for their operation is 9.48 percent – a rise from 9.16 percent two years ago.
