Cracks in the MVNHS©?

Hmm, this sounds familiar:

"The [MVNHS©] can’t go on like this. Patients today – baby boomers, especially – bother the doctor with minor complaints ... and have unrealistic expectations of what the health service can provide. The system is at breaking point ... We are going to have to start paying for some medical services at the point of delivery."


So the Much Vaunted National Health System© has been no more successful at reining in costs with "free" health care than our own "dysfunctional" system?

Who'da thunk it?

Oh, yeah.

This diagnosis, by the way, comes from physician (and Tory MP) Phillip Lee, who adds that the system "probably can limp on for the rest of this decade ... but the reality is the pressures coming from the baby boomer generation and their expectations of health care, their perceptions of pain and suffering is profoundly different [than] their stoic parents who survived the war.”

In other words: suck it up, buttercup.

Or it's hit the Pathway for you.
