[QUOTE=stukaville]You can't see why it matters because your basing your view on unfounded assumptions. You are assuming the NHS is automatically getting more for less. Usually you tend to get less for less but I'll be logical here and assume the NHS is getting the same, for alot more. Hear is my logic. The doctor my father saw in Stepping Hill said that the test used to be done at Stepping Hill. He used to carry the the test out. All he would need to keep on doing this test is the equipment that he must of had originally. Based on what I have seen, I would say that in a good deal of cases contracts are being formed with private healthcare providers for 'ideological' reasons. That is being a tad kind at best. It wouldn't suprise me if some of these contracts were more about who was mates with who, who owns shares in what etc.[/QUOTE]

Well, if the 'buyer' at the NHS is choosing the more expensive option then he should be sacked so I'll assume the 'buyer' is not incompetent (imagine that in the public sector?)

However, if the doctor you saw carries out the test, he's earning £70k a year, + employes NI, + generous pension + generous holiday allowance then absorb all training cost then you compare that to someone who can do the test for a Min wage, I'd be demanding my taxes spent to get that doctor working with the high level cases and the simple tests be carried out at the most economical level.
