    Metro NHS the best in the World

    Proof that what I have always said is true, we have the best health service in the World.

    I'm surprised France scored so badly.

    I wonder how they get their results. France will drop down because of the cost, you don't get treatment for 'free here'.

    Yeah, I think they take that into account, but France seemed to be lower than expected for categories that don't take that into account, such as Timeliness of care, where they ranked 10th.

    I'm not convinced by the results. My only experience of French hospitals is when I had Abigail. From just that experience I'd say the care was better in France. If you need to see a doctor, you can see one straight away. There's no hanging about like there is in England.

    NHS may be tops WHEN you can get it, too many foreigners getting it free, or for tits enlargement.

    Many of the foreigners are Doctors, Specialists, Surgeons, Nurses and other staff,
    The NHS would collapse without them
    Does your complaint cover them as well.
