    The British healthcare system is collapsing, and it couldn’t come at a worse time for the governing party of the United Kingdom. The Conservative Party is already reeling from multiple political crises that saw the exits of Prime Ministers Boris Johnson and Liz Truss. Current Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is staring a massive social calamity in the face amid sinking poll numbers for his party. The next British general election isn’t until 2025, but Sunak is already trailing Labour by at least 20 points in the polls. Yet, he can’t worry about that now since the National Health Service will...
  • Gov. Hochul Considering ‘Options’ After NY Supreme Court Justice Strikes Down Vax Rule for Healthcare Workers

    New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) is reportedly considering her “options” following a judge’s decision to strike down the coronavirus vaccine mandate on healthcare workers. The New York Supreme Court Justice Gerard Neri this month concluded that the Empire State exceeded its authority by mandating the Chinese coronavirus vaccine on healthcare workers, deeming the rule “null, void and of no effect.” New York’s Department of Health disagreed with the decision, deeming vaccines — which do not prevent transmission of the virus, nor do they prevent one from contracting the virus — “a critical public health tool.”
  • Lancet Urges Shift Away from Human-Centered Health Care, ‘All Life Is Equal’

    BREITBART ^ | 23 Jan 2023 | THOMAS D. WILLIAMS, PH.D.
    The traditional approach to health care takes “a purely anthropocentric view — that the human being is the centre of medical attention and concern,” the Lancet declares, whereas One Health “places us in an interconnected and interdependent relationship with non-human animals and the environment.” In its revolutionary proposal, the Lancet suggests that the life of a human being is not necessarily worth more than the life of any non-human animal One Health demands that we take a fundamentally different approach to the natural world, the journal contends, “one in which we are as concerned about the welfare of non-human animals...

    Fantastic Facts ^ | May 2, 2019 | Dr. Michael Shannon
    This is a true story about coming full circle in life and how the world is a lot smaller than it seems. Some find the facts too hard to imagine, and others believe it’s a miracle featuring fated twin events. There are two main characters to the story, Dr. Michael Shannon and firefighter-paramedic Chris Trokey. Both are California residents where the action first unfolded some 30 years ago. In 1981, Dr. Shannon was a pediatrician in San Clemente who found himself with a major challenge on his hands. A premature baby weighing 3.2 lbs. was fighting for his life, and...

    The UN's World Health Organization wants member countries to surrender sovereignty over healthcare decisions, dictating to people on one of the most vital aspects of their lives. The World Health Organization (WHO) failed to forewarn the world about the 2020 coronavirus pandemic. The measures it mandated did not prevent the loss of lives and collapse of economies but helped pharma giants make billions through enforced vaccination. Against all evidence, it gave China a pass on a possible lab leak of the virus. Now, pursuing its massively funded left-elitist agenda, it wants member countries to surrender sovereignty over healthcare decisions. President...

    Nearly one quarter of hospitalized people experience a harmful event during their stay, a new study finds. However, most of the bad outcomes are not preventable because they're related to known side effects from medications or risks of surgery. "These numbers are disappointing, but not shocking," study author Dr. David Bates. "They do show we still have lots of work to do." His team used data from the medical records of more than 2,800 patients who were hospitalized in 11 Boston-area hospitals during 2018. The data showed that while at the hospital, 663 of these patients had at least one...

    Emergency patients across the country are forced to endure the longest average waiting times in recorded history - with ambulances sent to people suffering conditions like heart attacks and strokes taking more than an hour and a half. Average ambulance response times in England last month were the longest on record - as more than half of people at major A&Es had to wait longer than four hours for the first time since records began in 2011. The latest NHS England figures also showed a total of 50.4% of patients attending major A&E departments were not seen within the target...

    More than 7,000 nurses at two hospitals in New York City went on strike early Monday morning demanding better pay, better working conditions and more staffing. The strike began at 6 a.m. after nurses at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx and Mount Sinai Hospital in Harlem failed to reach an agreement with hospital administration during a bargaining session Sunday night, according to the New York State Nurses' Association. [Snip] "Now they are faced with the added challenge of short staffing that has reached critical levels and could compromise their ability to provide the best quality care to their patients."...

Hannah Marie had to wait 11 hours for an ambulance just days before her death.

    NHS hospitals are in crisis-mode because of 'structural' problems and Britons' poor health, a Tory MP claimed today. Hospitals are buckling under winter demand, soaring rates of flu and bed-blockers. Covid's resurgence and the emergence of the XBB.1.5 'Kraken' variant are expected to cause even more chaos. A&E patients have waited up to four days for a bed. Others are treated in cupboards, corridors, meeting rooms and even outside hospitals.... ...Nearly 3,800 flu patients were in hospital each day last week, on average — up seven-fold in one month. And around 8,600 Covid patients were taking up beds on December...

    When seeing a doctor in California now, it is important to understand that you are now visiting a servant of some politicians, not an evidence-based medical professional, a doctor posted on Twitter. Effective January 1, 2023, Assembly Bill 2098 authored by Assemblyman Evan Low (D-Campbell), and signed into law by Gov. Gavin Newsom, is to circumvent due process against doctors over “Covid misinformation conduct.”
  • Medicare Costs to Go Down in 2023: Lower-than-expected spending on an expensive drug and other things means beneficiaries will pay less next year.

    Medicare beneficiaries are getting a rare bit of good news as their Part B premiums and deductibles will tick down next year after the government health insurance plan spent less than projected in 2022. Unfortunately, the cost reductions beneficiaries will see next year are much smaller than the increases they shouldered this year. But costs will also go down for Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D prescription drug plans. At the same time, deductibles for hospitalization costs under Part A will be going up. If you’re new to Medicare and wondering what these letters are all about, we’ll get to...

    When discussing censorship, there are often “vague implications” on the effects of that restriction. But by censoring medical science and health policy, “you are killing people,” Dr. Scott Atlas firmly stated in an interview that aired on Newsmakers by NTD and The Epoch Times on Dec. 28. “Censorship of the correct science and medical information, during this pandemic, absolutely killed people. It prevented people from making intelligent decisions. It prevented people from making the appropriate use of caution,” Atlas alleged of Twitter censoring doctors such as himself. Furthermore, Atlas charged, Twitter’s censorship was particularly “harmful” and “shocking” because the United...

    Democrats’ universal health care fantasy must be stopped so we can save our citizens from health care shortages and suicide.Today, Canadians are experiencing a three-word addition to what Ronald Reagan called the nine most terrifying words in the English language: “I’m from the government, and I’m here to help you kill yourself.” Soon after the announcement that Canada would expand its medically assisted suicide program to include those with mental illness, the popular Canadian department store chain Simons issued a new advertisement celebrating the policy. The video features a woman saying, “Last breaths are sacred; you just have to be...

    You may remember the battle over the public option, an idea that was designed to gradually turn Obamacare into single-payer over time. The idea was that Obamacare exchanges would offer some sort of non-profit plan to compete with all the for-profit insurance plans. Over time it was assumed more people would select the public option until it had eventually captured the whole market. The initial plans for a public option fell by the wayside but three states have instituted some version of a public option. Politico reported Tuesday that, so far, it hasn’t worked as planned.In Colorado, which is enrolling...

    The National Institutes of Health is directing people to an absolutely absurd paper published in the journal Advances in Health Sciences Education. I have no idea how prominent the journal is, but I have a decent idea of the prominence of the NIH. A government agency under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, they essentially determine medical education in this country. The NIH actually invited these authors to lay out their theories of medical education. The paper is scary as hell. Not quite Canadian medical murder scary, but very very scary nonetheless. Why so frightening? Well, our NIH...

    In its latest effort to make permanent pandemic-era mandates for health care workers, the federal agency regulating workplace safety has submitted a final draft of rules to the White House budget office for review. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), which sees exposure to COVID-19 as a matter of workplace safety, in June 2021 issued a temporary emergency standard for health care facilities that include requirements around screening, ventilation, physical distancing, physical barriers, cleaning and disinfection, and masks. In December 2021, however, OSHA announced that it would stop enforcing all temporary emergency standard requirements except for a few related...
