Growing Old with the MVNHS©

Or maybe not. A new report from those on the front line of British medical "care" paints an  unflattering picture, with "damning evidence of variations in surgical care based on patients' ages, with the chances of being operated on peaking in middle age and plummeting for those in their 60s, 70s and 80s."

It's not just life or death issues, either:

"[T]hose needing new hips and knees are missing out on treatment routinely offered to younger patients even though they could benefit."

This isn't really news to IB readers, of course; we've long documented the shoddy care provided, or rather rationed, by the Much Vaunted National Health Service©. What continues to be most frightening, though, is that this is the future of health care under the ObamaTax.
