How will physician jobs be effected by Obama care and an ageing population? written by: Mercian To understand the {impact|influence|affect|effect|impression} that Obama care might have on physician jobs as the population ages, we would do well to look at {countries|nations|international locations} that offer social health {schemes|plans}. Britain's NHS is a good example. We are both anglophone {countries|nations|international locations} with a lot of similarities between us, we do however have some differences. One major difference being that we have private {{healthcare|health care}|health care}, {whilst|while} the NHS in Britain is {entirely|completely|totally|fully|solely} {Government|Authorities|government} funded, and was set up not long after {world|globe|planet|earth} War 2. The NHS in Britain has good aspects and bad. The level of care provided can often be detrimentally effected by political {decisions|choices|selections}. During the early years of Tony Blair's Labour {Government|Authorities|government}, targets became a {priority|precedence}. There were targets {introduced|launched} which endeavoured to reduce the waiting time of being seen by a {{healthcare|health care}|health care} professional. This led to a {situation|scenario|circumstance|predicament|circumstances} where nurses would go {around|close to} the waiting room and see patients, {purely|strictly} as a box ticking exercise, and not to treat them. Leading to longer waiting times before {actual|real|precise} treatment was {delivered|sent}. Bureaucracy is often a hallmark of public {service|company|{services|companies|providers|solutions}|support|program}, even with the very best of intentions. In the NHS, as funding has {increase|improve|enhance|boost|raise}d, it hasn't necessarily led to an {increase|improve|enhance|boost|raise} in {Physicians|Doctors|Medical {professionals|experts|specialists|pros}|physicians}. During the Labour {Government|Authorities|government}s tenure, spending on the NHS {increase|improve|enhance|boost|raise}d {significantly|considerably|substantially|drastically|appreciably}, yet much of this resulted in {increase|improve|enhance|boost|raise}d spending on {senior|more mature|older|mature} management {rather|somewhat} than on {{healthcare|health care}|health care} {professionals|experts|specialists|pros}. In 1997, spending on {senior|more mature|older|mature} management was 190 million GBP, by the time Labour left office in 2010, it was a {staggering|incredible|unbelievable} 1 billion {pounds|kilos}. If we take the example set by the NHS and apply it to Obama care, physician jobs are not {guaranteed|assured} to {increase|improve|enhance|boost|raise} {significantly|considerably|substantially|drastically|appreciably} nor fall, even as more people may require their {service|company|{services|companies|providers|solutions}|support|program}s. {increase|improve|enhance|boost|raise}s in funding and targets can often be lost in layers of bureaucracy. The private {sector|market}, manages to avoid a lot of political intervention, because it is beholden to market forces in many respects. Where social {{healthcare|health care}|health care} differs though, is it's available to everyone without charge. As the population ages, we are {likely|most likely|probably|possible} to see and {increase|improve|enhance|boost|raise} in the {number|quantity|{amount|quantity|sum|volume}|range|variety} of Americans {needing|having|desiring|wanting|demanding} {{healthcare|health care}|health care}. Yet at the same time, as the population ages and more people retire, there will possibly be a smaller pool of American tax payers to pay for public {{healthcare|health care}|health care}. So only with good leadership will levels of bureaucracy be kept to a minimum and more {Physicians|Doctors|Medical {professionals|experts|specialists|pros}|physicians} employed. Much of the {world|globe|planet|earth} at the moment is {facing|dealing with|going through} {harsh|severe} austerity due to {Government|Authorities|government} overspending. {{healthcare|health care}|health care} in these {countries|nations|international locations} is no different, except that {cutting|chopping|reducing|slicing|lowering} it is possibly seen as more controversial than any other public {service|company|{services|companies|providers|solutions}|support|program}. {whilst|while} the US economy is {strong|powerful|sturdy|{robust|sturdy|strong}}, it is in debt and will need to reduce public spending at some point. But {Physicians|Doctors|Medical {professionals|experts|specialists|pros}|physicians} jobs may be a little more {robust|sturdy|strong}, as layers of management and administrative {staff|employees|workers} are made redundant. A {Physicians|Doctors|Medical {professionals|experts|specialists|pros}|physicians} is a highly skilled job, and no matter what {happens|occurs|takes place|comes about|transpires} in the wider economy.
