Quote of the day

"The truth is that the NHS is actually a stunningly cost-effective supplier of high-quality healthcare, so let's celebrate the fact, and help those working in it to make it even better rather than going out of our way to destroy its structure, the morale of those who work in it, and to overburden them with impossible tasks which they can never fulfil that can only result in worse outcomes for us all."

Accountant and economist Richard Murphy on the NHS, by comparison with the healthcare systems of six other major countries. Needless to say, the US model comes out as both the worst and by far the most expensive.
