Private sector doctors should not be able to overrule your own GP

The idea is that whichever law allows companies to send people to private  doctors, who are obviously working in the interests of the company, not the patients (in breach of some of the most basic tenants of their profession) needs to be changed in some manner so that these unethical sellout doctors cannot overrule your own GP.

Your own GP acts in the interests of a patients wellbeing, as it should be, whereas an unethical private doctor working only in the interests of a company only has their own financial interests and the interests of the company they have sold out to in their minds.

Overhaul NHS dental contract systems

There are now a ludicrous amount of people without an NHS dentist & this has to stop. As well as the obvious dental health issues there are serious future heart health implications for a nation with rotting teeth.

The system was excellent in the '70s. Shouldn't we be progressing by 2010? Rather than routinely hearing tales of people extracting their own teeth with pliers?!

It's barbaric.

End humiliating medical tests for genuinely disabled.

Those on HR DLA shouldn't have to be subjected to a battery of further medical tests as part of the current welfare reform proposals.. These people have usually been subject to many tests over the years. Why should 1 doctor's opinion be trusted more than another anyway?
Too often we're bombarded with negative 'scrounger' type stereotypical imagery which has contributed to a recent surge in disabled hate crime.  What you don't get to hear about are the people with very real & disabling conditions (with a poor enough quality of life anyway) subjected to Dr's asking them to urinate in front of them & other such grossly humiliating 'tests'& questions. Enough is enough!
