This book makes detailed comparisons between health care in the UK, France, Germany, and the USA, in order to demonstrate just how wide the gap between the rest of the developed world has become. The author also demonstrates that the solution to the health care problem is not always simply for governments to spend more-and offers possible answers. Contents include: Rationing and Cost Containment. International Comparisons. Options for the Way Ahead in the UK.
