"Based on market economics rather than the needs of the patient"

In two days more than 3000 Swedish doctors have signed an Internet petition, protesting against the quality of healthcare in this country. They say Swedish physicians spend less time with each patient than do doctors anywhere else in Europe.

The doctors say Swedish healthcare is based on production and the market economy rather than the needs of the patient.

But Minister for Health and Social Affairs Göran Hägglund disagrees, saying the picture painted by the protesters doesn’t accurately reflect the Swedish healthcare system.

One of the organizers behind the protest, Märit Halmin, tells Swedish Radio News there’s a huge discrepancy between how the politicians describe the healthcare system, and what doctors actually see.
