Australia's Health System.
Our nations health system is a disgrace - we pay a fortune for a substandard and inefficient system. We pay for Medicare in our tax system, the higher earners pay an additional levy, the government forces many of us into costly Health Insurance and if we have to make a claim, we pay "gap" payments and/or an excess. Those who are uninsured must take their chances on the "public" system and wait for surgery and treatments that often come too late. How many Australians die because they cant get the treatment they are entitled to (and have paid for in their taxes?).
The medical profession have become smug and complacent in our society - they see themselves as being indispensable and their time is sacrosanct - if we are late, we often find our "appointment" cancelled, but WE can wait for hours in a waiting room without explanation or apology. Our doctors have become very litigation conscious and their profession has (like most others) become bogged down in rules, regulations and record keeping. When we see a doctor these days, mostly we are referred for all sorts of scans, x-rays, blood tests etc., etc. before the practitioner will hazard a diagnosis. This considerably escalates the cost (both in time and monetarily) of medical treatment. Simple illnesses that could be treated quickly become protracted unnecessarily.
Likewise, regulation of medication has become a nightmare - we have to show ID for flu medication just in case we might try to remanufacture it into illicit drugs. Have you noticed that, these days, your doctor will prescribe the MINIMUM medication to treat the illness?..... often it is just not strong enough and you have to go back for repeat prescriptions or stronger drugs.
Dirt poor farmers in third world countries usually get better, faster, more efficient medical treatment than we do and very much cheaper (if they can scrape together the few dollars necessary) than WE DO.
