The Health Debate.

Across the world we seem to have problems with the services provided with regard to Health.

This little gem reached me by email and I thought it went right to the core of the situation.

The Health Debate.

When a panel of doctors was asked to vote on adding a new wing to their hospital, the Allergists voted to scratch it and the Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.
The Gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it, but the Neurologists thought the Administration had a lot of nerve, and the Obstetricians felt they were all labouring under a misconception…
The Ophthalmologists considered the idea short-sighted; the Pathologists yelled, ‘Over my dead body, while the Paediatricians said, ‘Oh, Grow up!’
The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, the Radiologists could see right through it, and the Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing.

The Internists thought it was a bitter pill to swallow, and the Plastic Surgeons said, ‘This puts a whole new face on the matter.’
The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists felt the scheme wouldn’t hold water.
The Anaesthesiologists thought the whole idea was a gas and the Cardiologists didn’t have the heart to say no.
In the end, the Proctologists left the decision up to some asshole in administration.

    Of course what would really happen is that the new wing would never get built anyway because after millions of pounds/euro had been spent on consultants, architects, staff recruitment, fancy brochures etc, there would be a last-minute funding crisis and it would all be scrapped.
