MVNHS© Infighting: “Vultures” vs Rats

Monday, October 10, 2016 8:46
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.
First up, the scavengers:

Vulture lawyers bleed the NHS for £418m: Their sickening fees in one year are enough to hire 19,000 nurses

As here, British barristers often append outsized fees to relatively modest awards. In some cases, they’ve been willing to (dramatically) reduce their “take,” but only after being “forced to accept” the lower amount.

Meantime, those who actually provide the care that’s under scrutiny are abandoning ship in droves:

More than four out of 10 doctors are planning to practise medicine overseas and levels of workplace stress have risen across the profession

Of course they are: under nationalized health care schemes such as the Much Vaunted National Health Service©, doc’s are limited as to how much they can earn, and often forced to work longer hours. Why wouldn’t they start looking elsewhere?

And of course, if they’re going to end up being sued for the care they do provide, where exactly is the incentive to tough it out?
