Healthcare in the UK

With all the talk about healthcare reform, the topic of systems in other countries crops up a lot. For example, Britain's NHS is frequently portrayed as a disaster by the media in the US.

This short documentary (again on Frontline) talks about the UK system. This is clearly not the solution for the US, but I think it indicates that there are, perhaps, alternatives that work pretty well. As always, its all about getting the incentives right.
