It takes a certain kind of place for no one to complain at blunt abuse! I work for a fancy City job that pays private health insurance for me. The terms of the health insurance policy however are that any specialist appointment must be sanctioned by the NHS doctor. And so here I am, pre-8am, in the line for the public doctor together with people who actually do need free health care, taking means from those who need it because my insurance is too stingy!
Now, I wonder, why does the NHS accept playing this sad role?! Why don’t they make private insurances have their own general practitioners and stop bothering them?
And why aren’t all users complaining? Why such indulgence for the establishment, such acquiescence for the rules someone else drew up that accommodate for their own pocket interests?
Such a strange place…
