Someone recently asked CGI Clinic an intriguing question: “Why would someone pay X (eg. a doctor) for their services?”
For those in the public health sector, we might assume that patients only come to seek medical help to relieve pain and suffering. In mental health, this is the relief of mental pain and suffering.
In Western Culture, we tend to seek health services only when we are sick/unwell for a treatment, not necessarily when we are well (to seek a better a way of living).
“It is health that is real wealth, not pieces of gold.”
