Hey anyone see the article in this weeks NT comparing US & UK mortality outcomes?? I can't link it because to read the whole thing you have to register (which is free). If you're interested go to Nursing Times - Home
, click "NT Clinical & archive" then "clinical extra", once you've registered.
In a nutshell it shows that, even though the US spends more on healthcare, our mortality rates are lower! Not all of it can be explained away by the lack of access or welfare for poorer people in the USA either - well that's what the article says anyway.
Sure makes interesting reading..........although the cynic in me wonders if it's government funded so they can say that even though they spend less per head we still do okay so it's alright for them to continue to squeeze every last ounce of blood from NHS workers!!!
