Healthcare consists of roughly one-tenth of Sweden’s GDP. The current government wants to increase privatization and strengthen competition within healthcare. The Red-Green alliance is mainly opposed to this. Explain your differing views!
We want Swedish healthcare to be world class. The size of your wallet or the insurance you can afford should never decide whether you will get healthcare or not. There’s no shortcut — world class healthcare needs educated staff, hospitals of the highest quality and, not least, successful medical science.
The current government has, step by step, changed the law so that we’re getting further away from equal healthcare for all. Now it’s allowed for people who have private insurance or can pay for themselves to “cut in line” in front of someone with greater medical needs. It’s also allowed to sell hospitals that we have paid for together. We want healthcare matching needs, not wallets.
