What the NHS needs is a 'Fair Use' policy


Oh gosh - remember that patients are tax payers and they have paid for their health care in their taxes, direct or indirect taxation. Remember that GP's are paid out of taxation in effect. Remember that patients have already paid and continue to pay for their GP's and their medicines. Oh, and while I'm writing - there are some patients with type 2 diabetes who haven't got it through lifestyle - I'm one, I'm slim, BMI 19, never eaten junk or processed food yet I'm inexplicably type 2 - hey even my endo is puzzled...but it's definitley nothing to do with how I have lived my life !
