Re: [IPu] British Situation ?



Hi Alan,
OK so a Health Board determines your case ... what are the standards they
have set ?  Could we use them in some way ?  The Brits still have a National
Health system which is far more like ours than the American model.  (though
maybe we could learn something from the US Medicaid system too).

Regards,

Janette
