The Royal College of General Practitioners has warned that the government\’s NHS plans jeopardise the principle of universal healthcare, saying that \”we are moving headlong into an insurance-type model\”. If there is any confusion about what an insurance-type model looks like, simply look across the pond to the United States.
Or France, generally regarded as having the best health care service in the world.
That\’s an insurance model, too.
Or, in fact, many if not most places. We\’re the od people out, with our system of having government be the provider, not just the financier, of health care.
