May, 2017 report:

Spain is ranked eighth in the world for its standard of healthcare, according to new research.

The Healthcare Access and Quality Index (HAQ), published in the UK journal The Lancet on Thursday, studied the quality of healthcare in 195 countries by measuring mortality rates from causes that should not be fatal in the presence of effective medical care. [ ]

Spain scored 90 points out of a maximum 100, placing it eighth in the world rankings, above the healthcare systems of Italy (89), France (88), Greece (87), Germany (86), the UK (85) and Portugal (85). [ ]

The UK placed 30th and the US 35th.



Thread: Spanish health care versus NHS.......No contest

Thanks to everyone for the useful information.  Puts our concern to rest.  I know about paying online, have paid 1 speeding ticket online myself.  That's one of the reasons I think our friends were victims of thieves, not police.  But I didn't know about 060, good info.  Again, thanks.

Note:  I am not Spanish, didn't know about that, and am talking about things that happened in the past months.  Sorry, good try but no joke!

Tadd1966 I agree with you generally and your ideas would be what I would probably do. I do speak Spanish, don't know if it would be better to pretend 'no understand' or insist on my rights in Spanish.

Were it not for the fact that I have known these people for quite a while, I too would doubt the truth of these stories. But as we personally have had some unhappy attempted road jackings (6 months apart, had our tires shot twice near Barcelona, motorbike pulls alongside, offers help), I would not be surprised at a new scheme to get cash.  Personally, I think these 'police' might have been thieves, not police at all.

On point 2, the man said that one of the two 'policemen' got into his own car, and the other followed them in the police car to his home.

There are always new ways to rob people, this might be one of them.

Thank you Mariedav, that is what I wanted to know.  I am surprised that it was ever legal to pay a policeman in cash.  Our friends didn't mention when this happened to them, maybe it was before March.  Out of curiosity, I will ask them.
