Britain Plans to Decentralize National Health Care

Britain Plans to Decentralize National Health Care – NYTimes.com

“It’s like getting your waiter to manage a restaurant,” Mr. Furness said. “The government is saying that G.P.’s know what the patient wants, just the way a waiter knows what you want to eat. But a waiter isn’t necessarily any good at ordering stock, managing the premises, talking to the chef — why would they be? They’re waiters.”

It’s bureaucratic arrogance like that of Furness that is the cause for the severe degradation of heath care, and health care outcomes – i.e. more people dying, in countries like the UK, Canada and others with government run health "care systems" .

Heaven forbid we actually trust in doctors and patients to make the best choices for their own treatment.  Why, that might actually look like, gasp, FREEDOM!
