Lets see you read to the bottom of this post before talking crap.
I have been following these kinds of stories for quite a while now, the consensus is they are treating something which has gone undiagnosed, simply
because there is a small loophole, word passed around years ago that having a bad back exempted you from working, and that just having the pain did
not mean they knew what the problem was, this then got abused by many people who wanted to claim disability benefits.
Now not everyone is lying about the pain they are suffering, but advances in technology has began to weed out the lazy from the genuinely ill, so
rather than just throw money on a burning fire, they are going to try and solve the problem, for too long now saying you have a bad back couldn't be
dis proven, people claimed their benefits, then got photographed moving furniture, and doing things they shouldn't be able to do ever.
The situation was discussed and it was decided that rather than treat an unknown illness, they would get to the answers in a different way, and it is
working, so many miracles have happened when some people hear they are going to do tests that will once and for all find the problem, because what
those tests reveal will decide if the person who has been claiming hundreds of pounds a week in benefits for years and years has been telling the
truth, if proven they face fraud charges and prison time.
It's very sad when so few can destroy a service needed by those who really need it, and it is just a few lazy good for nothings, those in real need
don't go without, in many cases they are being offered the more expensive option through surgery or other successful treatments, so basically
treating the problem and not the symptoms, which has to be better for every one.
It has nothing to do with socialised medicine, it's about getting the right resources to the right people, nobody here in the UK is refused
treatment, those who keep calling the NHS a communist system really don't know what they are talking about, they just use it to promote their own
propaganda, trying to convince people it's the biggest evil in the world.
How can looking after the sick free of charge without prejudice be evil? surely a system where when you need medical care, the last thing you need to
worry about is the money to get it cant be all that bad can it?
I have lived in the USA and used their Hospitals, and what annoyed me more than anything was the first question being asked after being hunted down
during a Cardiac episode DO YOU HAVE YOUR INSURANCE DETAILS, I had insurance, but surely the stabilisation of the patient should take priority before
deciding if you can afford the treatment?
I refused a CT scan when I was admitted to hospital in Phoenix simply because I am old hat were my medical conditions are concerned and I did not need
a test worth thousands of $ just because I could pay for it, that was just nuts, and every time a friend went to Hospital it was the same, worthless
tests for no reason.
A quick story for those who are still reading, A wonderful old lady I knew in Oswego NY worked all her life and paid into insurance and pensions, she
became bed ridden, and survived because of the work and payments made during her 50 year career working for IBM, then one day out of the blue, IBM
changed something, and all her income apart from $50 a month had to go on medication, how is that fair? how is that just or even moral?
From what I have seen nobody is going to be exempt from that kind of situation if your current system is allowed to continue, and I don't care who
you are, you don't know what your health is going to be like in a years time, no matter how good your insurance is, you will be dumped and refused,
that dear old lady had one of the top jobs at IBM, and was left to rot, and she had one of the best insurance policies you could get.
Last I heard she was in a home, her house had been taken and she had nothing left, I don't even know if she is still alive, maybe I'm terrified to
hear the bad news.
But don't criticise something you have no understanding of, because it could be your turn soon, get the facts before trying to convince the World the
communists are about to give you a shot in the ass, because for all it's downfalls, the NHS is still the best system on the Planet.
And all paid for by a small tax called National Insurance, nobody gets refused, and your certainly not asked stupid questions when you arrive at the
Hospital, you don't need your social security number or ID, the only reason your asked your name is to find your medical records, now is that a bad
system? or is giving your credit card details and whole financial history the best way to go?
