It was in the summer of 2010 that we wrote about Cameron's henchmen. Latest news is that the academics are at it again. Now the recommendations are that GP's should not sign off long-term sick. So if the GP's have no authority to deal with their own patients who know their history, medical records etc, exactly what does the GP have authority for? The medical profession is being taken over by private contractors, who are highly paid by the government to do the quango's bidding.
The LORD said 'Its all about funding'.
OK, so if its all about funding, then its all about money and not about the best care of the people.
This has got nothing to do with the people's good health. Its all about funding private contractors with contracts.
Academics and civil servants should stick to what they know best, and leave the medical profession to the medical professionals that have the responsibility for helping their patients and their health. If the medical profession cannot help the people to regain their health so that they can return to work. Then the medical professional requires a shake-up not the people that are sick of it.
David Cameron, like all of humanity are required to get their priorities right.
Good health of the people is about utilizing the best care for the people. Can Cameron deliver that? Clearly not, that has been proven time and time again. The medical profession in the UK is at least 50 years out of date, if you compare it with the USA, Israel and Japan. The multi-millionaire Cameron hasn't got a clue what it is like to live on 50 pounds a week, anymore then he as a clue of what co-creates disease in the first place.
And you have people like Cameron and his quango's making long term decisions on issues that he has neither experienced or truly understands. All that Cameron sees is the figures and the statistics, people are not a number or a statistic to be removed from a register because it suits his economic plans.
Whatever happened to GP's defending their patients and their human rights to be assessed by their own doctors? Are people in this country going to allow every facet of human life to be controlled by money and the politicians, or will the medical profession stand up and be counted, and in so doing, be left with any say at all?
It seems like the GP's are happy to be rid of the patients; that they have been unable to help due to a medical profession that is ill-equipped to heal the root causes of the core issues of disease.
Enough is enough, it simply is not good enough. That patients that have been sick for a long time get put between the rock and the hard place. What these patients require more than anything, is compassionate action to help them, not private contracting firms whose sole purpose is to remove the patients from the sick list.
