Rationing Hell: National Health Care in England

Rationing of NHS treatments is becoming more widespread, a survey of GPs and hospital doctors suggests.

Doctor magazine asked readers about rationing. Of 653 answering questions on consequences, 107 - 16% - said patients had died early as a result.

More than half - 349 - said patients had suffered as a result. This compared with one in five in a similar survey conducted nine years ago.

NHS rationing rife, say doctors
