Promote Your Clinic!

Tags: |

The blog received its first slice of healthcare privatisation spam last night:

Following our initial launch inviting clinics to register with “The Clinic Finder”, we have had a tremendous response from both the UK and overseas. These clinics will soon be benefiting from the leads being generated by people searching for a wide variety of Healthcare providers when we open for searches on 16th May 2011. To ensure your clinic can be found, please register now at http://www.theclinicfinder.co.uk. I would appreciate it if this correspondence could be passed on to the person who is responsible for promoting your clinic to the public and medical practitioners.

Don’t be reluctant to click on that link: among the wonders on offer are ‘Dentists, cosmetic surgeons, chiropractors & many more…’ and ‘Coming soon to The Clinic Finder MEDICAL TOURISM’. As Andrew Lansley says, ‘What is important is for patients to be able to exercise choice.’ Forget quality of care: who needs NICE when you’ve got The Clinic Finder? And so, to increase patient choice and widen the variety of healthcare providers even further, we’ve decided to take The Clinic Finder up on their offer: the LRB blog clinic will soon be open for business. We have no medical training, admittedly, but on the plus side we’re dead cheap.

    Drats! I thought I was going to have a monopoly!

    Can I interest you in a Franchise Opportunity? If not, are you offering them?

    If we set up enough SIVs, we can revolutionise both the medical and financial services industries. (Book title: “Everything I know in Life I Learned from Andrew Fastow“)

    You could branch out into being mammography providers, I’m sure The London Review of Boobs is a snappy enough name to provide instant market share.

  3. pinhut says:

    The cosmetology division? The London Review of Looks…

  4. conflated says:

    Surely there is significant in-house expertise in mental health treatment: the London Review of Kooks.

  5. pinhut says:

    And let’s not forget, care is one thing, but it’s the bottom line that counts – quality medical care from The London Review of (Cheque)Books.

  6. Geoff Roberts says:

    Typical. Why don’t you seize the chance that looms here? “Chose the wrong clinic? We’ll make the best of the rest for you. They make millions. For a moderate retainer we will sue the socks off them. Grabbit & Runne, medical errors are our speciality.”

    Chris Lehmann: The Candidates
    18 June 2015

    ‘Every one of the Republican candidates can be described as a full-blown adult failure. These are people who, in most cases, have been granted virtually every imaginable advantage on the road to success, and managed nevertheless to foul things up along the way.’

    Hugh Pennington:
    The Problem with Biodiversity
    10 May 2007

    ‘As a medical microbiologist, for example, I have spent my career fighting biodiversity: my ultimate aim has been to cause the extinction of harmful microbes, an objective shared by veterinary and plant pathologists. But despite more than a hundred years of concentrated effort, supported by solid science, smallpox has been the only success.’

    Jeremy Harding: At the Mexican Border
    20 October 2011

    ‘The battle against illegal migration is a domestic version of America’s interventions overseas, with many of the same trappings: big manpower commitments, militarisation, pursuit, detection, rendition, loss of life. The Mexican border was already the focus of attention before 9/11; it is now a fixation that shows no signs of abating.’

    James Meek: When the Floods Came
    31 July 2008

    ‘Last July, a few days after the floods arrived, with 350,000 people still cut off from the first necessity of life, Severn Trent held its annual general meeting. It announced profits of £325 million, and confirmed a dividend for shareholders of £143 million. Not long afterwards the company, with the consent of the water regulator Ofwat, announced that it wouldn’t be compensating customers: all would be charged as if they had had running water, even when they hadn’t.’
