Headline

Patients to be allowed to self-refer for cancer diagnostics without going through GP

Comment

why are people fretting about being 'needed'. Do you think anyone at NHSE has done a cost benefit analysis on this? do you think they know how to open a spreadsheet? Its uncosted and based on unproven associations with 'increased cancer diagnosis rates ' in some parts of Europe. As usual NHSE is full of zombies with single digit IQ's - what do you expect? Can you imagine the number of incidentalomas that will be picked up and have to have some sort of treatment! I suspect we'll be even busier then ever(unfortunately).
