Time to Stop Paying N.I.?

West Kent PCT tells us, “We are committed to delivering equality of opportunity for all service users, carers, staff and wider communities.”

And now tells us:

From this month, patients who smoke and need planned surgery will have to complete a NHS Stop Smoking course before their operation.

Patients who are clinically obese or with a BMI (body mass index) of more than 30 will also have their surgery delayed and will have to carry out a weight loss programme.

So, if you smoke or you are too fat you don’t get the surgery. It doesn’t matter that this is a service you have been forced to pay for all your life.
