And here’s a classic piece of euphemistic spokesperson lingo, from a Guardian article about how the NHS helps to ensure access to healthcare regardless of wealth. While we have better access to health, we don’t necessarily have the best results:
A government spokesperson said: “The UK lags behind many international healthcare systems on survival rates – for example, for diseases such as cancer or stroke – and the NHS must reform in order to achieve better outcomes.”
Where the euphemistic “better outcome” is avoiding death?! I imagine we could indeed hope for better outcomes in that case.
