Survey: two thirds happy with healthcare

A survey suggests that most Swedes think their healthcare system is working well, or fairly well. Polling company Sifo asked 1,004 people for their opinion, in a survey ordered by Swedish TV News.

Of those that responded, 64 percent said healthcare works well, or fairly well. Those over the age of 65 are the most satisfied, with three quarters positive.

But specialist medicine only has an approval rating of 56 percent, and fewer than half approve of private healthcare, only 43 percent.
