  • Anyone who's worked for the NHS knows that it's an incredibly wasteful organisation.

    Don't all healthcare systems do this? It's pretty much endemic. If you incentivise waste (by making it chargeable) like in the US healthcare system then waste is increased exponentially.

    At a macro level the NHS is in a pretty good place. Cost of healthcare per capita in 2019 of $4.6k vs. the US at $11k with far higher success rates for LfL operative procedures*.

    If governments (either side) were better at describing this then maybe we'd not have the NHS used as some sort of political football. Same is probably true for education, transport, energy, etc..

    *this is deterministic.
