Something that I have been wondering about is litigation (not because I am going down that line, though hubby dreamt that I had to give up on my career and he sued the surgery ). If medical professionals are refusing treatment or enough treatment and patients are worsening is there not several cases of litigation when patients worsen or is it too hard to prove? I wonder because I was thinking surely the struggling NHS would rather pay for the cheap B12 then for the worsening medical conditions and all the drugs that get prescribed. I then thought surely litigation is also a problem and costs a fortune. To me it is obvious that a way to save money is to treat properly in the first place and in these times the NHS could certainly do with saving money. Also the refusal to allow self administration - that means each time a patient needs an injection it takes up an appointment that other patienst may be in more need of and costs the price of a nurse's wages etc. None of this is logical to me, probably because I try to think of everything in logical terms. Anyone as confuse by all this as I am? It just doesn't make sense.
