a rather large disaster. . . at least from one perspective.

A major plot point in my novel is that a family isn't able to pay for hospital care.
I just realized that Scotland, where my novel is set, has a National Health Service which provides healthcare that is free at the point of treatment.
Oh dear.
I am too struck by how laughable this is to figure out what to do about it yet.

Set the time frame to before the law was set?

That's exactly what I decided to do. Now the setting is right after the second world war.
