UK nurses leave for the US too

BBC News: Why I quit NHS for the US'

The situation is very similar in Canada. I just wonder, is the US Health industry the next Enron or WorldCom? I have no evidence to suggest it is, I guess it just shows my level of confidence in business right now. What I do know is service there were drastically overpriced. Cheryl paid something like $700 for an emergency blood test last year (bleeding while pregnant), and nearly $400 for a scheduled ultrasound... both services that would cost a tiny fraction of that in Canada.
