for the most part it's a withdrawal of medicine from New Zealand because specialists cannot function here.

it's a sort of a demotion of GPs. there was some stuff a while back on how GPs need to stop viewing themselves as being the bottom of the medical doctor hierarchy and start viewing themselves as being the top of the non-medical doctor allied health workforce, or somesuch.

i actually wrote to the guy who was the most published advocator of such a view (a public health economics person) and asked him why he wanted to believe in hierarchy for?? no response...

but i guess i'm starting to see that GPs here don't really have much in the way of access to medicine, either.

they can refer patients on to specialist services, but we don't really have specialist services.

we're trying to professionalise allied health -- but it isn't working so well for us, honestly. i had my experience of physiotherapy....

i was looking into dental. apparently you used to pay around $100 or $145 for a dental exam (check, 2 x-rays, 10 minute clean). now, the introduction of 'allied health' to dentistry means you pay around $100 or $145 for a dental exam (check, 2 x-rays) and are often expected to book a full clean with a 'dental hygenist' which will require a separate booking and cost around $100.

then, before you know it the 'dental hygenist clean' will be remarketed / rebranded as a dental exam.

it's a way of charging people MORE money for LESS goods / services.

why wouldn't you -- if you thought you could get away with it?


why wouldn't you churn out... how many dental technitions every year? how much would you charge students for that degree?
