The choice of Insurance schemes is yours, the treatment however is exactly the same, it is a fixed cost system, each provider gets paid exactly the same.

You can extra for a private room etc, but treatment costs are fixed.

The system here in the UK is much less efficient, Guy is having to wait for his notes from Bristol where he was last registered.
Would that mean no private hospitals etc they'd have space in NHS hospital ?

Hi

No, they still have private hospitals where you pay for better accommodation or for things like boob jobs.

However the treatment is the same and there are no waiting lists.

It is very different to here.

I see I was a bit concerned that we could see eg boob jobs being done alongside mastectomies I could imagine some distressed people.

But if that's not the case sounds good.
