UK Death Panels In Full Swing

Published by at 8:20 am under All General Discussions

Do you have breast cancer? Better not live in the UK and have lived a long and productive life. Because if you do, the UK NHS death panels have determined there is no point to investing in saving your worthless life:

Elderly women are being denied life-saving breast cancer surgery that is routinely given to younger patients, alarming research reveals.

Some doctors look at a patient’s age in their notes – and decide on a treatment plan before they have even met them, experts warn.

Their study, which provides evidence of ageism in the Health Service, found that 90 per cent of breast cancer patients aged 30-50 are offered surgery to remove tumours, compared with 70 per cent of those in their seventies.

Even women in their 50s are less likely than younger patients to have an operation.

Only last week, a report by The King’s Fund think-tank warned that elderly cancer patients in Britain were being diagnosed later than those in other European countries and were less likely to be referred for operations.

Previous estimates claim that 15,000 elderly die prematurely every year because cancer care on the NHS is not as good as that provided elsewhere in Europe and the U.S.

It’s all about money. Money that free medical care does not have to spend, and never will. Why are UK patients delayed? Long queues. Queues created by lack of money.

Free health care is as real as the Tooth Fairy and Easter Bunny. Grow up people.

    What I want to know is do thay make “soylent green” or “soylent red” out of old people.

    Seems like the logical next step for the UK. I guess it would be “green” in honor of the globle green movement” They could make a special “red” batch to celebrate “May day”

    This money problem is pervasive throughout the system.

    My mother-in-law is 86. She has had both hips replaced in the past 5 years and her mobility and life have improved drastically. No way in hell would the English health system have paid for this. They would have issued her pain killers and doped her up for the rest of what remained of her life.

    This is what we have to look forward to. To top it all off, it was against the majority of Americans will. This gets even worse.

    Our republic can now be seen to be in danger like I have never seen before. Put it this way: Lets say that Republicans get the same measure of control of both houses of Congress and the President like the Democrats had in 2009 and 2010. Republicans can now privatize Social Security, just like they attempted in the 1980’s and again in the early 2000’s. How about repealing it altogether? How about repealing Medicare and Medicaid? Why do we need to know what the American public thinks anymore? After all, WE KNOW WHAT IS BEST FOR THEM. This is NOT representative government.

    Thanks Democrats and President Obama!
