Check out what Bill Campbell is doing over at his website, Tome of the Unknown Writer…
You may have heard, we Americans are currently debating our health care system and there’s a serious fight to have some sort of universal health care. Currently, the opponents of reform are filling people’s heads with “horror” stories from France, Canada, the UK, etc., about how your system basically lets people die in the streets while they wait for care. I don’t buy it, but a lot of people are.
So, I’m looking for stories from countries with some form of universal health care:
The UK, Canada, France, Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Israel, etc.
I want to know what your experiences have been with your health care system. I’m not looking for strictly good nor strictly bad stories. I just want honest stories. Tell us what’s been going on with you. Tell us the good, the bad, the beautiful, and/or the ugly.
Visit Campbell’s site for more information on sending a story. If you have friends/family living in a country with Universal care, send this post on/tweet this post and encourage them to share their health care experiences.
There are lots of stories already posted, so be sure to visit the site to check them out.
