What other countries are copying from Britain’s NHS 

February 26, 2014

When reading about the NHS in the press it is all too easy to focus on what is not right with it but to those willing to take a broader view, it may be reassuring that there are things that the NHS does well and other countries are trying to emulate it. The Economist (famous for its free market slant) has helpfully listed some of the things that are being copied from South Africa to Mexico to India.
Some of these things are the fundamental principles of free at point of use, the cost-effectiveness and the focus cost management using outcomes (e.g. NICE)
Anyone with any ideas to mess with these principles beware….
