A touch or irony

Posted by weehaggis on Tuesday, September 4, 2007

The concept of health care tourism is nothing new and this story “Dental trips go overseas
in the online English Aftenposten would indicate the practice is on the increase here in Norway. I find it somewhat ironic, that on the one hand Norwegians feel that their high taxes are justified to be able to pay for their social welfare system, but on the other hand an increasing number feel the need to travel abroad to be able to get affordable heath care…..go figure.

    Dentalwork is free up to the age of 18. Do you have free dentalwork in Scotland?
