Holby City

Is it just me, or did tonight’s Holby City just advocate railroading patients into operations they don’t really need, simply to show off fancy new machinery?
As soon as the patient confessed to being a smoker, the doctor’s attitude changed. Since the whole programme had a sub-plot involving the need to find a patient needing a heart by-pass to show off the new robotics suite, and considering the speed of diagnosis, the only conclusion that one can reach is that smokers are fair game for use as guinea pigs.
