Socialized Medicine: Fails every time it's tried.


Swedes enjoy world-class healthcare -- when they get it...


Over half of their income is taxed... and it's still not enough.


Swedes are frustrated over their universal healthcare, one of the main pillars of their cherished welfare state, with long waiting queues due to a shortage of nurses and available doctors in some areas.


"Asia Nader had a hole in her heart and had to wait a year for Swedish doctors to fix it."


"There is a risk their faith in the welfare state will be eroded,"


The 2016 nationwide median wait for prostate cancer surgery was 120 days, but 271 days in the northern county of Vasterbotten, official figures show.


"Every time you seek help you also see a new doctor...


In Solleftea, the premier's northern hometown with nearly 20,000 residents, the only maternity ward was shut down last year to save money.


They are considering a law that rewards counties for shortening queues, but this just encourages doctors to prioritise easily-solved cases

What?  "Excellent" Free Health Care in the UK not good enough for Mic?




The Medical Director at the British Heart Foundation, said Mick will probably have keyhole surgery...but not here.


Kinda like Cuba's "Excellent" Free Health Care but Castro went to Spain for treatment???

Another "Free Health Care" victim:


North Hykeham, East Midlands, United Kingdom

Teenager who suffered with 'period pain' for five years was shocked when doctors discovered a 15cm cyst had 'twisted around and killed' her ovary.

She was originally told it was 'probably nothing'.


The cyst was originally 11cm, but by the time Miss Woodthorpe was operated on - three months later - it was 15cm.


She now is reduced to begging for monetary help on Facebook.


Healthcare is free...or is it?


My name's Becky and I started this page to try and raise money to help me and my family.
If anyone can help in anyway that would be much appreciated, even £1 can soon add up. Thank you!
