Just how bad is the NHS?

Michael Moore's new film, Sicko, is getting massive attention in the US. No doubt the media circus will make its way over to the UK soon too.

It is the British way to moan about the state of the health service in this country, not only in the quality in service but the £90bn in annual costs to the taxpayer - not to mention the incredible waste reported almost daily. While I am sure there are many problems with our system that need addressing, I not aware of any country that has got it right. I very much doubt that the US system is the example to follow - and neither does Mr Moore.

I'll post more on this tomorrow - including the brilliant Dr Crippen's opinion over at NHS Blog Doctor
