Cross-border hospital access

This would much better news if the Zapatero and Villepin, instead of merely consenting to allow citizens to use the nearest hospital, had agreed to enable them to choose the best. That would, however, means providing information to patients. Aragon is having a go at publishing waiting lists, Catalonia isn’t, and in France waiting lists don’t exist, sez Michael “Francophile” Howard, or, as far as I have been able to discern, at least aren’t published. (This Dutch site was brilliant … until the government decided that waiting lists had improved so much that the stats no longer needed to be updated. Demonstrating one’s misery to the world in CSV is the British way, and one that I applaud.)
