Then there was an interview with a health minister. Apparently it's important that patients can make informed choices about their health care as they know best. No I don't. If I'm ill I want someone who knows what they are talking about, and who is competent in administering treatment to get on with it. How should I know what's the best way to treat my condition. By all means ask my consent, and feel free to discuss the options, but let's not pretend I'm an expert.
