    Hi  @stephanie44   who would you like to  complain to?  And what good would it do. There's a lot of people out there in the same situation thinking the same.

    We have lived through what have been desperate times in the last year, it has affected most areas of how we live, although I would say that during that time I have had 2 different cancer scares, on both occasions I have been seen by a GP within an hour of contacting the surgery and by a consultant within 9 days, the first time a small proceedure was carried out two weeks later, on the second occasion it was done the same day.
    I'm not sure I understand the point you are making about tax and insurance perhaps you could expand on that?
    I'm also not sure what help you are looking for?
