Quote of the day

From my post yesterday about qualitative research, this is the kind of thinking that, financed by taxes, is being used as the basis for health policy in the UK:

Departing from biomedical notions of being ‘cured’, ‘healthy’ or ‘disease-free’, wellbeing encapsulates notions of authenticity, recognition and self-determination; restructuring ‘health’ as a subjective and individualised process
