Healthcare is one of the biggest and fastest growing industries worldwide, it also accounts for more than 10% of the (GDP) in most countries. It can play a huge part in the success of a country’s economy, the trouble is, that there needs to be less money making and more care provided.
A blessing and a curse
Whilst technology is superb in many ways, it has enabled doctors, nurses and even stairlift suppliers in Milton Keynes to save lives that may have been lost. It has also aided in the evolution of medicines, how they are administered and produced, needless to say that, people have been helped along the way.
Unfortunately, though, as the tools that become more technologically advanced as do the systems that patients use, which is fast changing the whole process of health care from a personal service into something much more automated.
Between a rock and a hard place
The advancements of technology and the rate of which it grows cannot be stopped, however, something can be done to change the way we work and, the way in which people are cared for. Equally, the fact that medical care services are part of an industry and referred to as a ‘market sector’ already means that the overall motives are wrong.
When the focus goes from one of care, to one of financial gain, then the whole purpose of the care service is compromised. The best a person can do is to support local businesses that give you a fair price and, in turn, provide a level of care over and above the value of money.
