Re: What can England’s NHS learn from Canterbury New Zealand?

Your praise of "impressive progress" within the health system in Canterbury New Zealand overlooks one critical factor, namely, that we now require a charitable hospital to supplement services within the region where such an institution was previously unnecessary. If the NHS is to learn anything from our system, then it is imperative that full regard be had to the actual reality and costs of this progress(sic).
