Have you every heard of anything more stupid than paying doctors to help their customers restore poor health to good - but achieving quite the opposite effect.
The GP's are being paid by input, not output. They don't have standards of care they need to achieve.
What's best practice in this industry?
To whom are they accountable?
This is just a gravy train with no care and no responsibility. All this money going to GP's to improve people's health and the health of their customers is getting worse. The Government loves it. They keep protecting the industry and pay them to do more of the same.
We need some health and fitness standards here, something for the medical industry to live up to. Currently this industry is not accountable to anyone, for anything. Millions of dollars are going down the black hole. The wrong industry is in charge of health.
We need yearly surveys to tell us whether the health and fitness of the population is getting better or worse.
Currently the Australian Bureau of Statistics doesn't measure heath, fitness and wellbeing. Neither does the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare. Fitness is well and truly off their radar.
At the moment community health and fitness is getting worse because the Government money is going to the wrong people.

In the meantime stay tuned, highly tuned and don't go to the doctor for things doctors can't fix.
