Sir: I was pleased that your correspondent found the NHS services better than those provided in the Czech Republic, as healthcare spend in the UK is twice as much per head of population (letter, 2 December).

I have patients who are often treated in other parts of the world, and healthcare in France, Germany and America is usually found to be better than in the UK.

Again, this is not surprising as these countries spend at least 50 per cent more per head of population on health than we do. You only get what you pay for.
