United Health – The Commissioners

United Health Europe (a subsidiary of United Health in the USA) will now be commissioning services for the people of Northamptonshire.

However,

A spokesman of great integrity reassures:

“The company is banned from bidding to provide services in Northamptonshire to avoid a conflict of interest, a spokesman for Northamptonshire tPCT said.

Naturally……..

What United Health needs is a partner.

Just as HMG feels a need for partners everywhere.

One partner buys, the other partner provides………
One partner provides, the other partner buys………
One partner buys, the other partner provides………
One partner provides, the other partner buys………
One partner buys, the other partner provides………
One partner provides, the other partner buys………
One partner buys, the other partner provides………
One partner provides, the other partner buys………

You don’t get it, the people of Northamptonshire…..

Do you?

You’d better waken up!

Yes, waken up to the concept of backscratching!

It’s a common phenomenon.

And waken up to the fact a multinational company based in the USA will now decide what healthcare you need!

Is that your choice?

Is that “The Choice” of patients in Northamptonshire?

Patient Choice!

  1. Just been watching panorama , or something , about the future of GP , which is basically meaning…Commoditisation.

    They are now putting Doctors in Sainsburys , called “Doctors in Store” .

    I had an idea to undercut them , perhaps called “Doctors in Storage Rooms” or “Doctors in Broom Cupboards” .

    Perhaps there will have to be a gimmick aswell , perhaps , “Doctors on Rollerskates” , or “Doctors in Ice Cream Vans”.
    “99 with flake , the pill , and 2 prozac please”.

    What next?
    ” Doctor to Aisle 9 , please” . need assistance on scanning this ass , for a rectal exam, this bar code machine isn’t working.
    “free cervical smear test with £10 petrol “.

    or perhaps , the Macdonalds customer service programme perhaps monitoring the smile quotient , with obligatory insipid grin , and innane spiel (+/- Baseball caps? Garish yellow ? green?)

    You’d think that isn’t / couldn’t be possible , but when I look at programmes like “StreetDoctors” , you wonder how more demeaned can these “Doctors” get .
    There wasnt even a Hot Dog stand to examine people in , with the “Docs” resorting to examining people in alley ways , or sitting on a beerbarrel .

    “The NHS is safe in our hands” …Hmmm.

  2. Once the creep starts, anything is possible!

    Indeed probable!

    I like “Doctors in Ice Cream Vans.” It is aesthetically more pleasant than Doctors in Wheelie Bins that has featured on this blog.

    What we witches would prefer, though is, “Doctors on Broomsticks” whizzing around the corridors and committee rooms of HMG sprinkling “The Ancient Bottle Spell for Use in Dire Times” everywhere!

  3. […] A USA company is taking over chunks of the NHS. […]
