From BBC website http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/7850881.stm
"The survey of just over 200 doctors showed that two-thirds think older people are less likely to have their symptoms fully investigated.
Of those polled, 72% said older people were less likely to be considered and referred on for essential treatments.
And more than half the doctors said they themselves would be worried about how the NHS would treat them in old age."
Err, won't those worried doctors be at least some of those who are not treating people properly now?
