As we debate the merits of health care wait time guarantees in Canada the UK is reporting failing grades with their own wait times. As I've previously posted, I'm not a fan of guarantees. I believe the desire to retain funding by meeting the demands fosters deceit by the providers. I also believe it alienates providers as the ability to meet the demands is largely out of their hands.
