Socialized Medicine Cutbacks
The British Socialized medical system is looking
to slash care to patients to save money.
Thousands of people who struggle to hear properly could be denied British National Health Service hearing aids under ‘shocking’ cost-cutting plans being considered by health bosses.
Under the new proposals, those classed as ‘hard-of-hearing’ would have to wait until they had ‘severe’ hearing loss to qualify for the devices.
The new regulations have been put forward by health chiefs in North Staffordshire, who say that paying for hearing aids for people with mild to moderate hearing loss does not provide value for money for the NHS reports the Daily Mail.
They say the move will save £1.2 million, though no final decision has been made.
Campaigners warned last night that the idea could leave elderly and vulnerable people lonely and isolated.
Paul Breckell, the chief executive of Action on Hearing Loss, said: ‘We are shocked to learn of this plan to stop free hearing aids for people with mild to moderate hearing loss. These are exactly the people who need them most.

Socialized medicine has a government police
force to keep their patients in line.
