c) He never discusses the waiting lists, cricital doctor shortages and trained professionals, and need to import half the doctors in Britain and other European countries. He never discusses that some will die on the waiting lists for procedures like in Canada. OR that 'second opinions' and other things aren't covered, like plastic surgury?It looks like I misread what Telegraph had argued in this paragraph. He is indeed correct that Britain has needed to import doctors, although I don't know how many doctors they had needed to import.First, the shortages are the result of Britain's attempting to deliver cheaper health care. They spend far less of their GDP on health care when compared to the United States. Not bad when one considers that their population is healthier than ours and also have a higher life expectancy than ours.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_life_expectancy
