NHS cutbacks and DIY treatment

By Dude Swheatie of Kwug expressing a personal viewpoint

I'm a great fan of the unorthodox approach taken by What Doctors Don't Tell You magazine.(1) That approach challenges the dominance of 'Big Pharma' and encourages the uses of natural medicine. Yet here is a link to an article related to the dangers of the NHS 'outsourcing' treatment to the patient themselves. "Talk to a hypochondriac like me before advising patients to treat themselves to save the NHS"(2)

And note that family-based carers have already saved the NHS more than the total of the NHS budget!(3) But at what cost to themselves?(4)(5)
