After leaving the UK to work abroad I distinctly remember a presentation from a hospital about why I should go there. Which was weird because I was just used to going to ‘the’ hospital and that being that. Except now I had health insurance to deal with.

So, yesterday I was trying to cut down holiday screen time so had hidden the screens. Except what happened was that Yumo fell somehow and hit his head on a table. Which necessitated a visit to the hospital for stitches. Except, we managed to get in, see a Dr, get stitches and be back home in an hour. Which is great but wouldn’t happen in the UK. At all. But was only possible because of my work-provided health insurance.
