The ten delegates of the British National Cabinet debating the reform of their country's healthcare system were quick to find a widely-accepted solution to the current crisis that Britain is confronting.
“We’re going great, everybody’s collaborating, we’re coming up with some great ideas and there's not a whole lot of arguments which is always good,” stated the Minister of Foreign Affairs.
Despite the fact that the National Healthcare System (NHS) is considered by some as one of the best healthcare systems, there is a lot of controversy on the efficiency of this institution. There are many who directly face the consequences of its deficiencies, like having to wait for long periods of time to receive treatment.
The committee discussed several solutions to improve this system, such as suggesting the implementation of scholarships for those studying medicine in college in order to “have an increased output of UK trained doctors that could enter the NHS,” as said by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, thereby reducing the waiting time for each patient. The delegates also proposed the recruitment of foreign doctors from countries in Asia and Europe.
Amongst the other strategies that were introduced, the partial privatization of the NHS, the introduction of spending limits to reduce inefficiency, and the usage of money from the Brexit deal to fund this system were all prominent solutions that were discussed within the first hour of debate.
