§ Mr. Michael Brown
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether, in his examination of alternative methods of financing the National Health Service, he is including other countries such as the United States of America.
§ Dr. Vaughan
The studies we are making of the way in which other countries finance their health services cover 411W most developed Western nations, including the United States of America. Although there are many lessons we can learn from American experience, I do not believe, however, that the general system of health care funding in the United States offers an appropriate model for this country to adopt.
