Why are we no longer on the doctor's computer after the age of 75?
I had my cholesterol checked and it was high (7.2). My doctor said he didn't like giving medication to over 75s.
Also i have a brochure in front of me from the local NHS. In it, it says you can have a life check for young babies, teenagers and people aged 40-75. Don't over 75s matter any more? Have we lived too long, as there are a lot of us about?
