"Annals of Government Medicine

"Under government medicine, all health care is necessarily political. Why anyone would want to live in that world is beyond me. Here is the latest from Great Britain, where the Labour government is trying to keep budget cuts secret until after the election:

Tens of thousands of NHS workers would be sacked, hospital units closed and patients denied treatments under secret plans for £20 billion of health cuts.

The sick would be urged to stay at home and email doctors rather than visit surgeries, while procedures such as hip replacements could be scrapped. ...

Documents show that health chiefs are considering plans to begin sacking workers, cutting treatments and shutting wards across the country.

This one is especially scary:

In the East region, covering Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk, up to £2 billion is to be cut. The SHA proposes shifting services out of hospitals and making social workers take over some treatments.

Hey, that makes sense: they have a shortage of doctors and a surplus of social workers, so let's have the social workers start diagnosing diseases and performing surgery. That's what I call a death panel!"

I am a firm believer in the body heals itself. See that you don't have, hopefully more people will turn to Lord Jesus Christ with all future cutbacks. I support all cutbacks in medical.

Thanks Stephi! I too am a firm believer that the body heals itself if a person can remain in a peaceful non-stressful situation and be mindful at all times of what's taking place in their bodies.

However our current economic downturn has placed all of us under exceptionally stressful conditions that are detrimental to our health in general.

Exception to what I said above that when someone is in a dire emergency situation then prompt competent medical attention should be immediately sought. This is so especially with babies and kids because things happen very fast with them.
