"Rationing" is the word you're looking for.

62 hour wait for an ambulance in Wales.

The longest delays in the UK were recorded by Welsh Ambulance Service, which kept four patients waiting for more than 50 hours.

A spokesman said the figures were "not typical" and "represent the extreme end of the waiting time spectrum".

The Patients Association said they were "extremely concerning".

Between June 2017 and June 2018, ambulances from four services took 24 hours to reach patients, including some with breathing and mental health problems.

The trusts said the longest waits were for "less serious calls", and they had to prioritise responding to people in life-threatening or urgent conditions.

This is what is 100% guaranteed to happen in any socialized medicine system. In 62 hours, nearly three days, they could have had an ambulance drive over from France and do that call. But they would never do that, because -rationing- a resource is more important than providing the service.
