    John Key and Bill English’s Neoliberal hospital system…starve the public hospitals of funds and create highly paid, uncaring, elitist doctors …for whom the Hippocratic Oath is a ghost

    ( the more you read of this story the more appalling it is…who is going to take responsibility for this man’s death and appallingly inhumane treatment?

    …the highly paid doctor has not been sacked and the hospital says it is a systems failure!

    ( do we need doctors like this?…do we need systems like this?…I dont think so…certainly not highly paid ones…how many other people have been killed at Christchurch Hospital through lack of care ?)

    ‘Hospital staff dump Christchurch man Neil Jones at bus stop in ‘appalling’ failure of care’

    “A dying man was discharged to a bus stop wearing pyjamas because Christchurch Hospital staff felt he was a “nuisance” and “faking” his illness.

    Neil David Jones, 47, then lay on the footpath for six hours while members of the public tried to get doctors to help him. He was eventually trespassed from the hospital and taken to a shelter, where he vomited blood.

    An ambulance took him back to hospital, where he died two days later.

    ‘Christchurch man died after hospital dumped him at bus stop’

    (Neil Jones a widower whose wife had died in tragic circumstances had two young teenage children….and an alcohol problem which he probably used to cope…he wanted help with alcoholism but none was available for him….instead, as he was dying Christchurch Hospital turfed him out onto the street)

    In my opinion we need far fewer highly paid, elitist academic , doctors ( in the pockets of BIG PHARMA)… and far more caring New Zealand born medical professionals who provide counselling and treatment with nutrition and natural herbs.

    We need a new system model medical school at Waikato to provide GPs and medical professionals who have the capacity to care and relate to New Zealanders. We need medical hubs away from the old hospitals style of top down medicine.

    These new doctors and medical professionals to be trained should be taken from New Zealand Maori, Polynesian and women who are already involved in nursing and mental health and nutrition and counselling…

    The present system of medicine in New Zealand is alienating for many New Zealanders who need it the most…and it is killing them

      RB – And alert the public as to the toxicity of many foods we sell and consume. Ill Health is a business, Good health is not.

      Heart disease
      and other immune system based disorders are all connected with food and life style.

      Crap food is big business and feeds Health business with a supply of desperate and ill people who are milked for cash as is the taxpayer.

      Milk for example is included as a healthy food for Humans. Breast milk is healthy and essential for babies but cows milk is damaging for all, especially babies.

      “Milk Builds health bones” is taught in schools when milk actually damages bones and the high dairy consuming countries have the highest rate of osteoporosis. The mechanism of toxicity is well know and documented but ignored by Govt.

      They support banks who make billions out of escalating farm prices.

      Until NZ gets their understanding of food and health together then payment for a good health service is a contract the GOVT should be forced to keep.
