Profit in Healthcare- Coming Here Soon.

The ConDem's are forcing us toward a profit based model for Healthcare and Hospital Services, with their policy of 'any willing provider' as discussed in Pulse. Well actually, it did exist before under our old friend Andy Burnham, but he had a bit of change of heart, er, sorry, mind (he allegedly has a swinging brick where that organ should be). AWP is welcomed by some in Medicine although  I'm sure, not by my masked hero. Equally not by the journeyman doctor, whom I also admire greatly.

This is likely to be the result, in a country where Healthcare is always lauded as being better for having to be paid for. You may also find the export of another aspect of US health care, the 'pushing' of particular drugs by Doc's who are paid by Pharma. Great, really looking forward to it. Cheers Andrew, can't wait. You ******* ********!

Phew... that must be my shortest post, ever!

  1. Healthcare providers and pharmaceutical companies do tend to hunt in pairs. The former provides the latter with a shop window and gets big bucks for doing so. In Scotland when Serco tried to take over Harthill GP practice, Astra Zeneca were waiting in the wings to do this. Fortunately we saw them off and we also managed to change the law to stop this happening.
