Only a third!!!
Sorry, haven't got time for psychological interventions!
Chaps, we haven't had a socialist government for over 50 years.
I suppose you are blaming Bevan?
I did indeed vote socialist.
Happy to pay a tax increase in exchange for my first pay rise since 2004!
I suppose you preferred option is to close the NHS and charge everyone £65/appointment, £120/visit??
Yes, enough of the Tory run "public services are irrelevant"state!
Criteria is a pleural word.
The singular is criterion.
Chris, if I may,
why would the editor of Pulse be politically neutral??
Are the editors of the Mail, Telegraph, Times, Standard (formerly Tory Chancellor) entirely politically neutral??
Are Any of us?
We can't say that the right wing free marketeers are under-represented in our media, can we?
We are all aware of your sense of self worth..
Some of us actually believe in public services therefore by definition we cannot support Tory public service pledges because fundamentally they do not agree with public services at all.
Which neatly fits your agenda, so we should agree to disagree.
I believe anyone who works in the NHS (or social care) should never support the Tories unless they are entirely content with their terms and conditions and they are bringing it down on themselves.
Good to see the right wing cohort deliberately misunderstanding Dr Gates' point.
The government continue to peddle the lies that we can access any NHS service whenever we want and that they will provide the staff and the premises.
They then offer NO solution to the manpower crisis etc.
Market forces suggest that the root of this crisis is a mismatch between responsibility (infinite) and remuneration (reduced since 2004)
You never hear of a FTSE100 company struggling to recruit a board member-they just offer a better package!
DT for Health Secretary!!!
Lol, thought that was bears!
You beat me to it
Interestingly, I am not sure we ever established a raised cholesterol as a risk factor for women at all??
Still, if they throw money at us for doing it, we'll do it. All the valuable work has been defunded!
And yet we continue to "spaff" a load of money on NHS Healthchecks as if they are a good thing!!
If you can get a valuation-the last figures I can access are from 14 to 31/3/2015.#
No ome seems to know how much is there-so how can they tax me????
Surely the etymology of this article is incorrect?
How can a diagnostic screening test reduce the incidence of a condition?
Surely, by definition screening should increase incidence/
Another good reason not to prescribe...
Sort of depends on the patients really.
I often see patients with respiratory infections as "emergencies" to later discover they never collected their prescriptions for 48 hours!
Is Dr Narayan entitled to "death in service" pension payments??
Only at 60 do we realise quitting, losing weight and taking exercise??
Having done all that we have to treat cholesterol
Of course there is an increased risk of diabetes if you take a statin-1 in 204 is the "number needed to harm"
No one cares!
Correct of course.
So you retire at 60, decide to get a healthcheck efore you go to visit your brother in Australia for the trip of a lifetime.
Suddenly you have "cholesterol" and your travel insurance doubles in cost!!
