I have been lucky enough as a doctor to work in both America and Holland, as well as the NHS.
America was great, as long as you could afford insurance. Over 30% of population cannot, and their care is terrible.
The standard of care in Holland was excellent, possibly better than the NHS, but it cost much more than we spend.
Comparatively we spend less on health care than other developed countries.
Doctors do not always get it right, but can you think of any profession that does?
