It ain't easy bein' green: MVNHS© Edition

So your primary doc's practice is two miles away, and you rely on him to help manage your health care. Two miles? No biggie, right?


"Avril Mulcahy, 83, was told to address the “green travelling issues” over her journeys from her home in Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex, to the West Road Surgery. The surgery wrote to Mrs Mulcahy, telling her to register with a new GP within 28 days. "

That's right: this poor British senior citizen has apparently failed to placate the Green Gods©, and must now try to find a new primary care doc. That, of course, pre-supposes that this is even possible.

Adding insult to injury, Miss Avril relies on her doc for her prescription med refills, theoretically putting her health (if not her life) at risk.

Now, there are those that would say "well, that could never happen here." But how do you know? What's to stop HHS Secretary Shecantbeserious to find a Carbon Footprint mandate inside the bill we had to pass to learn what's in it?
