Headline

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

Comment

In a way , this is the mentality of 'patients are exactly the same as customers' as long as you can make it fast and convenient to please them.But customers know what they want when they walk into the shop but patients ? Do they know exactly what they walk into ? Of course , we were told to copy Tesco, so let's have a Tesco style of diagnosing cancers! By the way, I suppose people realise what has happened to Tesco these days?
