Another solution for the NHS
There is an interesting suggestion in Liberal Democrat Voice. England should follow Sweden in localising its public health service. Welsh citizens suffering from a devolved health service and looking at some Labour council administrations might query the proposition. To my mind, what makes the difference is ethos. In the UK governments have become conditioned to market theory, that practitioners throughout society are motivated by money. In Sweden - in Scandinavia generally - there is still a belief in public service.
