Medical patience

Angered by a jingoist ‘free market’ government, the heads of the British Medical Association issued a strong statement to stop the meddling with England’s National Health Service:

“The BMA wants to see an NHS untarnished by a market economy, true to its beginnings, giving the public a fair, caring, equitable and cost-effective health service.

“Not a service run like a shoddy supermarket war.

“Let’s stop pretending that healing the sick is like trading a commodity.” [The Herald]
