BorgCo are now piloting a new scheme to get round this. When a patient presents with appropriate symptoms, if the medic can identify a specific individual (for instance, an unbearable mother-in-law, or that worthless mouth-breathing slimeball Graham from Shipping and Despatch), they can request a full investigation.
Then, if it turns out that Graham from Shipping and Despatch really is a worthless mouth-breathing slimeball, and what's more would rob the pennies off a dead man's eyes, has the personality of a squashed dog turd, and is consuming oxygen that could be better used by a child molester, the doctor can instruct the hitman attached to the local HMO to quietly and painlessly remove the offender.
Everybody wins. The patient's problem is solved quickly and permanently, and there's one less repulsive mouth-breathing dolt wandering free to annoy everyone they meet.

he runs a rescue centre for abandoned gerbils.
