NHS goes to the dogs - or not.
I have just read in today´s Telegraph that an NHS Trust in England has decided to use its radiology department to X-ray cats and dogs with broken bones etc.. According to the report everyone seems to be outraged by this. It sounds a splendid idea to me. Its a given that no risks whatsoever can be taken with patients health - and it is equally given that dogs will always come second. But if we can harness the love that dogowners feel for their loved ones to expand NHS provision and help pay off debts - why not. If some of the efficiency with which the private sector deals with animal injuries rubs off on the NHS, we will all benefit.
