Survey reveals that the Irish healthcare system is almost the worst in Europe
This is worrying news...
A survey conducted by independent survey centre Numbeo has revealed that Ireland's healthcare is among the worst in Europe.
Of the 32 countries surveyed, Ireland's healthcare comes in 31st place on the list scoring a paltry 50.38 out of 100 on the HealthCare Index, losing out on last place to a spirited effort from Ukraine (49.69).
At the opposite end of the spectrum, France top the list with a score of 82.25 with Denmark and Belgium rounding out the top three on the list.
While their result was far better than our own, the United Kingdom will still be disappointed to place outside the top 10 as they rank in at number 11.
The HealthCare Index is an estimation of the overall quality of the health care system, health care professionals, equipment, staff, doctors, cost etc.
