MVNHS© Taking on Water

Last time we checked in with Britain's Much Vaunted National Health System©, we learned that new mums with breast cancer don't fare very well, healthcare-wise. Turns out, that was just a harbinger of things to come.

To wit:

"UK now has one of the worst healthcare systems in the developed world, according to OECD report"

Now what in the wide wide world of sports would prompt that pronouncement?


"Hospitals are now so short-staffed and underequipped ... Staff are too rushed to improve levels of care ... obesity levels are “dire

In other words: Thursday.

Here's the best part, though: all those folks bemoaning how we spend so much money on health care with poor results, and point to schemes like the MVNHS© as models to follow?

Guess what:

"Mr Pearson said the UK was spending “considerably less” than many OECD countries and that “you get what you pay for” in healthcare."

So if spending more doesn't help, and spending less doesn't, either, then maybe (just maybe) there are other factors to consider?

Wonder what those could be...
