For years, Canadians stuck on long waiting lists for medical care have travelled south for treatment. A British High Court ruling, however, could make it official National Health Service policy to ship folks abroad if they've gone without their guaranteed care for an "undue" amount of time. (What counts as "undue" isn't yet clear.) Of course, given the relatively high death rates of patients who undergo major surgery in Britain, it may be worth the wait.
