          There are GP surgeries that are still not open, leaving the pharmacy nearby overwhelmed with people asking what they do about repeat scripts and so on.

          The doctors in hospitals, yes, very good.

          Hancock is a political moron and will be used to scapegoat any inquiry results if required.

          Cummings is a windmilling psychopath and Starmer should steer clear of backing him. Unless he believes the castle up north actually had a Specsavers of course....
          Not joking, just my opinion, I bet GP surgeries not open are nothing to do with the GP's, but are because of the practise managers.

          Maybe my opinion is out of date I have not seen a doctor since 2015. Think they were all still using windows XP back then.

            and as usual wrong

            1. 1.
              an arrangement by which a company or the state undertakes to provide a guarantee of compensation for specified loss, damage, illness, or death in return for payment of a specified premium.
              "many new borrowers take out insurance against unemployment or sickness"
              Similar:
              indemnity
              indemnification
              (financial) protection
              security
              surety
              cover
              assurance
            2. 2.
              a thing providing protection against a possible eventuality.
              "jackets were hung on the back of their chairs, insurance against an encounter with air-conditioning"
            TBF English is not his mother tongue.
            "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."

              Having unemployment insurance won't stop you from losing your job, it will just attempt (if you don't get rejected) to compensate for it.

              Life insurance won't prevent your death either (in fact it might bring it closer in case somebody wants to collect on it)

              So in case of someone who is afraid to "have a walk in the forest" having "insurance" won't affect that from happening, it's not the insurance that's needed in such case, very bad idiom to use - usually people in such situations discover that to their peril.

                Insurance has two definitions in English.

                To purchase an insurance product the definition you are posting about.

                To perform an act as a preventive measure against something happening - LM's definition.

                Both are correct however they aren't interchangeable.

                Many English words have this dichotomy
                "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."

                    Yes.
                    FFS, it's like those surveys on lifting the ban on neonicotinoid pesticides, due to their harmful effect on honey bees (and other useful insects presumably)

                    Despite resounding opposition, every couple of years the Government comes back to try and lift the ban again, and now they've lifted it anyway!

                    2021-01-09 Government breaks promise to maintain ban on bee-harming pesticide

                      Re the NHS data sharing thing, it's actually a different data sharing (which doesn't make it any better). The Register article I shared does its best to describe the difference.
