Thread: Upturn in Spanish property sales?

I am a big fan of online Skype type lessons, and this one looks good - but it is between 20 and 35 euros per session depending on how many sessions you sign up for.    This makes it a bit expensive compared to other sites?



Thread: What is the best way of learning Spanish at home?

Yes indeed.  It used to be the same in Engand but I think they are much happier to pick and mix now.   It used to be the case that if you paid for a tiny part of your treatment (e.g. chemo with a new drug) the NHS would ditch you for that illness - but that was changed some time ago to give patients more choice.   But as ever, the quality of the surgery is dependant upon the quality of the surgeon - and there are huge variations there too.  Both private and NHS - as the Birmingham scandal over breast surgery has shown.   That surgeon had a huge patient list of both NHS and private patients.   Terrible.

Well all that all of this shows is that there is a huge variation across both countries - and is that not what you would expect?     I would just say though - it is not true that using the NHS or going private makes no difference:

'Private or  public wouldnt make any difference I found out, because it was the same specialist going either way, and being seen in the same place, therefore the same waiting queue.'     1.   You can choose your surgeon and go to a different private hospital or NHS hospital with a private wing rather than wait.   2.  You can be certain it will be the surgeon you have chosen who does the procedure rather than a junior surgeon.   3.   If you choose to stay with the same NHS surgeon you will still be able to see him/her faster as they offer additional clinics for private patients.  These include operations on Saturdays (which is why a lot of consultants in the NHS do not want the 7 day week as the weekends are when they do their private practice).    Lots of NHS workers will not tell you how easy it is to get private surgery/treatment as they are committed to the NHS (sweet - but unwise).   They also don't tell people that it is not that expensive to see a surgical consultant (maybe £200 - 350?) and it is often well worth it rather than wait weeks for an NHS appointment.   You can always hop back over to the NHS if you dont want to pay for an op.

There were only 11 countries included, and Spain was not one of them:

'The NHS has been ranked the number one health system in a comparison of 11 countries.

The UK health service was praised for its safety, affordability and efficiency, but fared less well on outcomes such as preventing early death and cancer survival'.

Obviously - the NHS will score very well on afforability.

This is the top 20 according to the WHO:

1 France
2 Italy
3 San Marino
4 Andorra
5 Malta
6 Singapore
7 Spain
8 Oman
9 Austria
10 Japan
11 Norway
12 Portugal
13 Monaco
14 Greece
15 Iceland
16 Luxembourg
17 Netherlands
18 United Kingdom
19 Ireland
20 Switzerland
