Rather than going back and forth with "nope blocked for me", "oh works for me"
useless junk, did it not occur to anyone to run a simple console command?...

  $ host www.nhs.uk
  www.nhs.uk is an alias for san.nhs.uk.edgekey.net.
  san.nhs.uk.edgekey.net is an alias for e9134.ksd.akamaiedge.net.
  e9134.ksd.akamaiedge.net has address
