Another miracle of government medicine

(Via the Drudge Report)

Family doctors have been ordered to ration the number of patients they send for life-saving cancer scans to save money.

They are being told to slash the number they refer to hospital for tests including ultrasounds, MRIs and CT scans commonly used to spot tumours.

It's no wonder, as the article notes, that the UK has one of the lowest cancer survival rate in Europe.

Remember, this same outstanding level of care will be coming soon to a hospital near you, courtesy of Barack "This way to the ice floe" Obama and the Democratic party.
