Bonus Post – What do the British think of their Healthcare system?

by Dr. Rick Kirschner on August 18, 2009


In the health-care ‘debate’ currently going on – and I use the word ‘debate’ ironically – those against the bills being considered keep talking about Britain’s system of healthcare and how bad it is.   They want to persuade you into believing that it is an awful system, one that can’t hold a candle to our American system.  BBC thought this was a story worth covering.  What do the Brits think?

Watch this video and find out.


I’d like to hear from any British readers.  Or any readers outside of the US.  What do you think of your healthcare system?

Meanwhile, the World Health Organization has ranked nations’ health care systems and come up with a list. Here’s some of that list:

1 France
2 Italy
3 San Marino
4 Andorra
5 Malta
6 Singapore
7 Spain
8 Oman
9 Austria
10 Japan
11 Norway

13 Monaco
14 Greece
15 Iceland
16 Luxembourg
17 Netherlands
18 United Kingdom
19 Ireland
