Thousands of patients could be denied NHS treatment and left to die under ‘worst-case’ emergency plans for a swine-flu epidemic.

The blueprint would force doctors to ‘play God’ and prioritise intensive-care treatment for those most likely to benefit – ruling out patients with problems such as advanced cancer.

The ’scoring’ system would be introduced if half the population became infected with flu.

Hey thanks for making no comment what so ever and pasting an article. Way to keep in touch with the T&C.

Swine flu is absolute pointless hysteria. It hasn't killed even a fraction of what the seasonal flu kills (in USA alone, not to mention world wide) The only deaths will be from those who receive the vaccines.

Sounds like triage to me, which is something that has been done for eons. Perhaps it may seem immoral, but its efficient.

That is exactly what it is, nothing new about that in the slightest. Its been that way through all the wars, and even today when you go into an ER, you are seen by a Triage Nurse first to asses your condition and place you in order of priority.
