Cancer scans delayed in NHS funding crisis as doctors fear 'slash and burn' cuts

This is what Obama and the Democrats are bringing to America.

Vital scans for patients who may have cancer are being postponed by up to six weeks as the NHS grapples with a major funding crisis.

GPs have also been ordered not send elderly people for osteoporosis scans, to refer children with tonsillitis to specialists - or even allow men to have vasectomies.

In addition, wards are threatened with closure and thousands of key staff have been told to work shorter hours or take unpaid 'career breaks'.
