This is a MUST READ article from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

via Health policies and data – Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

OECD provide best-practice, and bench-marking by country for health policies.

Take a look at the data and you will see that the UK’s record is worse than many developing countries, it’s real, bottom-quartile stuff, in places.

This comes out as the  UK Health Minister is ordered to come clean about plans to redress the UK’s healthcare crisis. Meanwhile, at the same time the UK’s Department of Health (DoH) is pumping out to the media data that is irrelevant to the UK’s widely predicted healthcare melt-down this Winter.

Why isn’t the UK media getting across that the UK’s National Health Service is in final melt-down territory and recommending the scrapping of the NHS, replacing it with a best-practice public healthcare system modeled on say Germany, France or Italy?

Any thoughts?
