Medicine Corner – A Doctor Writes
This week…Dr Jim McDaid
“As a Doctor I’m often asked is it enough to cure the patient even if that cure kills them?
I for one personally feel that the economic welfare of this state must be paramount – otherwise there will be no money to pay crucial frontline medical staff; particularly part time GPs in the Donegal area.
If payments to people like this are threatened, I ask you – who will write sick notes for the needy and hungover who need last minute time off work if they are lucky to have it?
Ah fuck this….
PS…..ye won’t forget to forward my pensions on? Will ye lads?”
