So true, but I’d beware of quoting the UK NHS as a good example of things to aspire to. It has been in the jaws of Neoliberalism for a number of years now, and is succumbing rapidly. The British Medical Association at its heart is funded by big pharma, which influences what GPs are taught in their tender years. From the point of view of big pharma, Illness management makes more money than illness cure, and the earlier it can be started in a patient’s lifetime, the better. If the world was ranked in terms of Neoliberalism, US might well be leading, but I think UK is probably number two, and the NHS is one of our last remaining juicy victims.
