All ideas and info. provided here are to be discussed with your medical professionals. I am NOT Medically trained. I have merely had this vile disease since 1998 - always use your Common Sense and seek expert medical advice.
YOU MAY FIND THE LINKS in text and in the Right Sidebar of Help.
I can NOT vouch for any external site that I may direct readers to & therefore can NOT accept any legal responsibility - this is a personal blog of that which I believe only.
I do NOT believe there are magical cures hidden from us by our medical professionals though there are without doubt cases that seem cured as if by magic. Medical knowledge of this disease is very rudimentary and research frequently profligate but pointless!
However - sticking goji berries in your ear on a moonless night or similar WILL NOT HELP - Nor will the price paid for quackery be it here OR Mexico, Brazil or China!
There are many health care professionals trying their very best with great care and compassion but perfection is a little way off!
Be Minded:
I have cancer - cancer does not have me!

"Cowards die many times before their deaths; The valiant never taste of death but once.
Of all the wonders that I yet have heard, it seems to me most strange that men should fear;
Seeing that death, a necessary end, will come when it will come". - (Julius Caesar - Act II, Scene II).

More disobedience in fortress NHS

More disobedience in fortress NHS

The NHS is a fortress. Too big to be managed, too big to be accountable. And the unaccountable managers mismanage with impunity.

Thus we had the Daily Mail telling us that "family doctors have been ordered to ration the number of patients they send for life-saving cancer scans to save money".

Now, as the article explains, this contradicts government policy.

The cuts are being brought in despite Government pledges to give GPs better access to cancer tests in the hope of saving 5,000 lives a year.... But it has since emerged that a quarter of Primary Care Trusts are actively discouraging GPs from sending patients for these tests.
And five Primary Care Trusts have actually banned family doctors from sending patients directly for scans. These delays will doubtless kill some people.

As usual, the Department of Health didn't know what was going on inside the fortress it supposedly controls.

Now Health Secretary Andrew Lansley has ordered NHS chief executive David Nicholson to write to every single trust telling them they must not impose such ‘blanket restrictions’.
13% of GPs had been told to reduce the number of patients they sent for MRI and CT scans - commonly used to diagnose cancer.

Who gave these instructions in the first place? How many of them will be sacked?


While we wait, there's more. New research shows that thousands of patients are being denied hip and knee replacements, cataract operations and IVF as PCTs try to save money.

A survey of 300 family doctors by Pulse magazine found that many had been told to ration certain procedures not deemed urgent, which also include hernia operations and blood-testing for diabetes.
How many of those anonymous, unaccountable managers will be hauled up and sacked?
