A £200 million a year reserve, for life boosting cancer medicine is to carry on up until 2016; the Prime Minister has announced.
This must be a sign of things to come and, it’s all extremely magnificent, but what happens to those sick people that are being given medical care, following 2016?
Well, after 2016, if the nest egg isn’t prolonged, in that case, all those patients that are being given medical care and, medicated to preserve their lives will be informed that they’re not eligible any longer and, some will eventually lose their lives.
The project was expected to end next year, but David Cameron has promised £400 million to keep it ticking over and, it’s beneficial to keep it ticking over, as this move means for Mr Cameron, that logistically, he anticipates putting himself as a front runner, so that he can be the winner of the next election, since people will then believe that if he doesn’t get in, the project will merely continue up until the next election takes place.
From now up until the next election all people will see is the here and now, what the government are doing and, they will try to convince you that it’s to try and make the United Kingdom a better place.
And, that’s all people will see, as the government surges a cargo of cash into many enterprises that they think people will want to see and, they won’t worry on how much cash they pump into these different schemes because deep down they know they’re not going to be the winners of the next election.
Cancer organisations have greeted the move positively, yet Labour have blamed the Prime Minister of letting patients down. Well, there will be a large amount of sick people who will be let down after the next election, unless the next faction go about doing things more wisely than the last did, which we all have aspirations for, but will that be the case; yet I for one, am not holding my breath, since they all give one’s word that they will give you the Garden of Eden and, then they give you Hell on Earth.
I congratulate those people that will be getting medical care and, the role that the fund will perform in fighting the disease and, tens of thousands of people who will be given medical care because of it, but what will become of those people that won’t be eligible for treatment because they didn’t live in the right postal address?
There are around 30 medications that are obtainable on the Cancer Drugs Fund and, over the last three years around 34,000 sick people have had medical care that they wouldn’t have had otherwise, had the money not existed.
Admittedly some of these patients wouldn’t have survived, had this cash not been accessible and, what has been achieved is brilliant, but who is going to deal with the sick people that will be refused medical care after 2016?
The intention of the CDF was to make it easier for medics to prescribe treatments even if they’ve not so far been approved by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (Nice).
The project was set to run up until 2014 and, campaigners raised worries about where patients would turn for help when the resources came to an end.
So, following 2016, where will sick people turn for help when the money has ceased and, will activists have to raise their concerns once more?
David Cameron appears to be hanging out that carrot once more, because he said that the CDF had been a huge triumph and, added that should he be voted in once more, he would propose that it be continued beyond 2016.
He said it would be proposed, not that it would without question be maintained… Oh, that dangling carrot again.
This declaration, which will be warmly greeted by a great deal of sick people across the country and, will influence others into thinking that David Cameron is doing this for the good of the people.
A good number of you need to peruse all through the fine print since Mr Cameron will never do anything other than getting himself results from the general public and, those results are votes that they will give him, if he appears virtuous and, looking as if he’s doing the proper thing.
Another charity said that while the announcement was optimistic, it warned it was just a stop gap and, highlighted the instance of a lady who was unsuccessful and, did not fulfil CDF specifications to Avastin, a medication demonstrated to delay recurrence and, what is the criteria and, why do some people fulfil it and, a number of people don’t.
After all, Cancer is Cancer, it doesn’t prey on particular people, so why should certain people be selected to satisfy a particular specification and, that if they don’t meet that specification, they don’t get medical care.
It’s just about being fortunate, but that’s not fair and, it shouldn’t be a matter of good fortune and, some people get medical care because they’re charmed enough to live in the right postcode, but if they’re vulnerable and less assertive, or don’t have the help, they will in all likelihood die.
