England – the land of barbarians where the one-eyed man is king

WET MACULAR DEGENERATION

The Witch Doctor is not a ophthalmologist.

Therefore The Witch Doctor is not in a position to write authoritatively on this matter.

However, this matter seems so important that lack of authority is not going to stop The Witch Doctor mentioning it.

THE SOUND OF SILENCE

Just as Barry Monk writes about “Jack’s eye.”

Just as Dr Martin Rankin a Devon GP writes an open letter to Gordon Brown.

It concerns wet macular degeneration.

Read it for yourself.

And decide what you are going to do about it.

USA RATIONING

In Sicko, in the USA, only one amputated finger could be sown back on. Not two. There was enough money for one, but not two.

The Witch Doctor thought that was barbaric.

UK RATIONING

In the UK, go blind in one eye first, then we’ll pay for treating the second.

The Witch Doctor thinks this is barbaric.

PATIENT CHOICE

How many patients prefer to have vision in one eye rather than two?

Where are the ophthalmologists?

The ophthalmolgists that must have been behind this decision.

Where are the ophthalmologists behind the decision that, in England, the one-eyed man is king.

Can they justify their decision?

Why the silence?
