I recently asked someone with a central role in the 1990 NHS reforms why we in Britain had paid so little attention to the successes and failures of others' healthcare reforms. “We were always too busy,” he replied. I was, once again, struck by the contrast with the intense interest in our experiences shown by our European neighbours.
