Unfortunately there are a lot of those career types, rather than carer types about.
They are encouraged by the new 'judgmental culture' that is permeating the NHS. i.e. no treatment for you because you are...too fat, smoke, don't go jogging blah blah. Much as I accept that we are all responsible for a proportion of our own health, I'm afraid it's being used as an easy fund saving get out clause.
A dangerous ideology in my opinion, do we stop treating STDs because people have sex, or cancer due to too much processed meat, broken bones due to sports injuries....?
Ooops having a rant again
