Depends on how you define "better".
They certainly have a greater % of Govt. paid for coverage, and higher taxation to cover it. No doubt there.
But for a specific individual, the claim of "better" treatment is not so solid.
Depends on the individual. Poor person, yes, much better. Anyone else....perhaps not so much.
Something overall system stats fail to account for, as such things are lost in the masses of numbers and averages.
For my Mom, for example, the UK is a lifesaver. No doubt about it.
For me, no, I get better service and treatement here than I would in the UK. Of that, having been in both systems, I have no doubt.
