    I’m training to be a medical scientist at the moment, and work in the health industry. There are only a few small pathology groups that still bulk bill patients. I really think there is a fall in the number of patients following through on advice to go to pathology. PAthology is essential – patient history alone won’t diagnose cancer, infectious diseases – patient history alone rarely gives anything but a presumptive diagnosis. Two of the biggest pathology groups in Queensland have changed their fee system several times to bring back patients. It’s a huge story – with huge ramifications on public health. Patients rarely refuse medical treatment for any other reason than cost – and pathology really can mean the difference between life and death. Pathology and radiology are essential services to have as much significance as general practice. Great story and thanks for the link.
