Great Britain mourned the death of the Queen, with many traveling to London to say goodbye to the Queen after her death. The funeral will take place on 19 September – this day has also been declared a public holiday in Great Britain. This is hardly surprising when you look at the importance of monarchy in Great Britain. But some Britons are no longer facing the unpleasant consequences of regulation.

As many British media, including the “Guardian” report, the funeral has been canceled several times. Thousands of theatres, museums and retailers will not open their doors and even food banks will remain closed. However, it is especially serious that doctor and hospital appointments may not go according to plan.

Queen’s funeral raises health condition

According to Open Democracy, several local NHS agencies in the UK have been authorized to reschedule “non-urgent procedures and appointments”. Including screening for pregnant women and even isolated treatment in relation to cancer diseases.

It can be assumed that general practitioners and hospitals will only treat emergencies in many areas on Monday, which is not uncommon on a national holiday. On the other hand, it was convened at very short notice (After all, no one could have predicted the exact date of death of the queen), which is why the question of the need to cancel the medical appointment certainly arises.

Medically speaking, in most cases it shouldn’t be a problem to postpone treatment for at least a few days, but the bigger problem is that many people won’t be able to get an alternate appointment in the next few weeks, maybe even months, because Waiting lists at island hospitals are currently longer than usual anyway,

At the end of July, 6.8 million people were already waiting for an appointment, 377,000 of whom had been there for more than a year. Also: In 40 percent of cancer patients, treatment was postponed for more than a maximum of two months. Given this, scheduling a new public holiday at this time seems highly doubtful, posing even greater risk to a large number of people.

Some businessmen will be quite willing to work even on public holidays. At least this is the assessment of this doctor, which also points to a bigger dilemma in the labor sector, as opposed to “open democracy”:

“I think most doctors would ignore the holiday, but we depend on a huge team of people like sweepers who are paid minimum wage and are treated like crap. I think they’re on vacation. If offered, accept it – just as I would.”

Appointment cancellation: Many Britons upset

Many people in Great Britain who have been directly or indirectly affected by medical cancellations have spoken out on social networks. This user had to have a heart test, he had already waited four weeks:

Another user mentions a close relative of his who is undergoing chemotherapy. It’s only in this week’s next treatment that we’ll find out what the appointment looks like on Monday, September 19, with the agreement hanging in the air. There is a “disgusting” (understandable) verdict.

Finally, this man mentions that his wife’s breast cancer treatment was canceled that Monday. The date was reportedly postponed to the next month. In his case, it would probably have no ill effect, but the user also thinks about other patients and writes:

“It is a wait that will almost certainly cost lives. It is an obscenity on the part of the monarchy.”

Irish music duo Jedward also took a critical stance on their official Twitter account. The twins’ statement read: “Canceling the funeral and postponing cancer treatment because of the Queen’s funeral is inhumane! No one should be treated as a second class citizen!,

These are just a few examples. But many Britons are impressed – and accordingly outraged.

Queen: There must be limits to national mourning

Yes, the British love their monarchy and yes, the grief for the queen is great. Until recently, however, when people’s health is put at risk because of a person’s memory, they did not even know personally, There should be a fixed limit of national mourning as decided,

In general, some wonder what exactly prompted Elizabeth II to earn the honor of her own holiday during the course of her life – Apart from the fact that she was simply “always there” and a tradition to worship the royals. He did not take any political decision, on the contrary he maintained the principle of non-intervention. Princess Diana’s death was tragic, but it may seem strange to have such repercussions for the peaceful passing of a 96-year-old man.

For example, the awkward situation in practices and clinics could easily have been avoided if the Queen’s funeral had been scheduled for Sunday, 18 September – but because arbitrary protocol states that the Queen’s funeral will be held “ten days after her death.” should be after”. There is no other way. This is where the monarchy is at its most ignorant and ugly.

It was rumored for a long time that Matt and Kathy Hummels had split, but in the spring of this year the rumors were more or less officially confirmed. Meanwhile, the former couple has been relatively open about the separation and Kathy also talked about possible circumstances for love.
