    According to this link and others I have seen it does say that cash paying customers get preferential treatment in Great Britain and Canada. I don't see this as a problem as long standards are kept.

    "For example, Canadians sometimes choose to undergo cataract surgery on an
    outpatient basis in private clinics. Although the government will pay the surgeon’s
    fee, private patients often pay $1,000 to $1,200 in “facilities fees” to
    obtain faster treatment than they can get at a government facility
    "

    So you are saying that

    Oh and their NHS waiting period to see a GP is on average 18 weeks.
    and

    The wait may exceed 18 weeks for patients who:

    * Are not medically fit to be treated, for example those who are too overweight for surgery to be performed safely
    are the same thing? Also your source said


    An 18-week wait is the longest allowed. Most NHS patients do not wait anything like that long. The average wait for treatment for patients admitted to hospital is now 8.6 weeks. Patients who did not need to be admitted waited an average of 4.6 weeks as of January 2009.
    And this is for the following.
    * Being admitted to hospital for an operation or treatment,
    * Starting treatment that doesn’t require you to stay in hospital (for example, medication or physiotherapy),
    * Beginning your fitting of a medical device such as a leg brace, or
    * Starting an agreed period of time to monitor your condition to see if you need further treatment.
    Not as you said
    NHS waiting period to see a GP is on average 18 weeks.
    Sorry Pagey, I just had to state the obvious.

    But that is not jumping ahead in a line. It is going to a private clinic. There are a number of procedures that are allowed to be done outside a hospital environment. Some doctors set up practices in these areas.

    Unemployment is low and the economy strong and their standard of living and life expectancy are almost second to none.

    Better take a closer look under their soft underbelly of school voucher systems.

    There are certain areas there that ambulances won't even go.

    And no major industry has been started in Sweden since 1970.

    Their only saving grace is that they are not a member of the EU.

    This is Andrew Breitbart, he is hard to take seriously on any subject. This is a little off topic isn't it?

    They’re suggesting that the creation of Israel has been a disaster for the Palestinian people.
    Can anyone claim otherwise?
    The establishment of Israel in 1948 inflicted on the Palestinian people a continuing campaign of displacement, discrimination, exploitation and brutality that has continued to this day.
    Get out! I don't believe it.



    Mind you there are no clean hands in the Middle East.

    Sweden is a member of the EU although it does not use the Euro.
