Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 11, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, January It, MIX THE LETHBRID6E DAILY HERALD age � BRITISH DOCTORS WILL NOT ACT FOR THE I o- National Insurance Act Seems to Displease British Medical Association London, Jail, 11.-The decision of the council of the British Medical association not to work through the Insurance committee BOt up liy National Insurance Act, because of their disagreement, with the terms of compensation offered by Hie goverumonf, has caused a serious split in the association. After long negotiations and plebiscite of the profession, in which the majority of doctors voting decided against accepting the. Kovernment'H terms, the council submitted an alternative policy which gave the various divisions oC the association freedom to negotiate with the insured persons or their representatives, the approved societies. The government refused to consent to any such arrangement and proceeded to the formation nf panels of medical men willing to work under the act, and announced that In any area where there were not sufficient doctors accepting their terms, to make other provision for giving medical henollt to all insured per- osns who require it after January lilth, the date on which the benefits come into effect. In most of the last cities the gov ornment has found no difficulty in ob-tiijiiing sufficient doctors to sit, and in some districts all the doctors have accepted the terras. It ia in the country districts, where the old fashioned practitioner still has a complete monopoly of the practices, tihat the greatest difficulty will be found. Those who have accepted the government's terms have formed the National Prac-ticioners' association and have withdrawn from the older association. In the first plebiscite, the doctors voted by an overwhelmingly majority against the plan on due ground that tho fees were not large enough. The government partially met this objec tion by increasing the fees, but the doctors were still dissatisfied and they fought hard for more. Another plebiscite was taken and while a majority of those Who voted were against falling in under the new scale of fees, a still tieater majority abstained. It is these abstainers with the minority in the voting upon whom the government is now relying. Mr. Lloyd George, the sponsor of the act, expresses* confidence that he will secure sufficient doctors, but says if he does uot he will establish a National Medical service.
