Re: UK NHS vs Alberta Health Service - Which one is best?

Wait time can be anywhere between 15 mins to 12 + hrs in Calgary. I have worked in a hospital for over 12 years and have seen a great variety of wait times, also depends on injuries.

Re: UK NHS vs Alberta Health Service - Which one is best?

I have lived in AB for 13 years and work in healthcare. I have never used the UK system as an adult so I cannot compare.

Re: Moving to UK in 2020. Can I pull it off?
