    I think this is true in the whole so called first world where cost is always put first .until their is a major upheaval in the way medical systems work as in the realisation by everyone that industrialised medicine only works for the beancounters and administrators it grossly fails the patients and the more conscientious staff .

    This is quite correct, the medical systems in most countries are reactive not proactive, they not only miss people who don't come in but focus little on preventative medicine, healthy diet, exercise (for non ME/CFS patients), proper sleep, etc.
