RE: [IPk] Re: Happy New Year

>In summary cost and time.

Anyone would think healthcare in Britain was a government-controlled 
charity handout. It's not. We pay for it. Through taxation. The 
distribution of the money to different departments/illnesses etc 
sometimes beggars belief. If we calmly accept that our diabetes 
clinic is inadequately funded, we are adding to the problem. If you 
think your diabetes clinic would benefit from having 1 CGMS machine 
per 10 patients, rather than 1 per 500 patients that they may have at 
the moment, tell them this! Don't just moan to the DNS: write to the 
chief executive.

The cost of CGMS machine is little compared with a year's kidney 
dialysis, or the amputation and aftercare of a gangrenous foot.

Sorry if I sound a bit grumpy today 8-)

Advance on all fronts!
