  3. 3. As a tourist... As a Medical Student or Doctor... Better informed. Learn what works, and what doesn’t, and how we can improve.
  4. 4.  French healthcare is funded by a mixture of public and private money.  Pay up-front, then Health insurance reimburses at least 70% of all health costs.  Those of low income are entitled to Couverture Maladie Universelle (C.M.U)- 100% of costs are covered, no up-front charges.  In 2006, France spent $3554 per capita on health, in contrast to the UK where per capita expenditure was $2784.  Total government expenditure: 79.9% in France, 87.4% in the UK.
  5. 5. Expenditure on Health in France Public Money Private money Expenditure on Health in UK
  6. 6. Inarguably better in France French have the right to choose their doctor, and go directly to a specialist (although may not be reimbursed) Waiting lists virtually non-existent. 90% major/non-acute operations carried out in France within 90 days, just 65% in UK. Same-day GP access always available.
  7. 7. In France 34 physicians per 10,000, UK only 23 per 10,000. Medical students- same number of admissions as doctors retiring.
  8. 8.  Cancer incidence per 100,000 population was 75.3, compared to just 51.2 in England in 2000  The 5 year survival rate for cancer in France 1995-2000 was 79.1%, compared to the English 69.8%  Lack of treatment availability?  Lack of screening? • 75% vs 70% PAP • 78% vs 75% Mammography • 15 per 100,000 vs 8 per 100,000 PSA
  9. 9. Heart attack mortality 30 days after admission 6.3% in UK and 2% in France. Better care, or red wine good for the heart?
  10. 10.  Lack of coordination in France, as healthcare provided by isolated individuals.  Leads to over-prescription, waste, and inadequate care plans.  A study by one of the leading health insurance companies in France: Just 40% of diabetics have a regular eye examination.  Recent plans to combat lack of social care: employ social workers on the wards.
  11. 11. Very little hand-washing & Elusive alcohol gel dispensers. Snacking on croissants in the bureau medecin Corridoors smell of croissant, not of disinfectant. White coats (infrequently washed) worn by all Medical staff & Students. Despite this, MRSA rates are 44% in UK, just 29% in France.
  12. 12. How does France compare to England when dealing with common ailments such as a cold, backache or old age? “OLD AGE: France: Visit several doctors (all of them refundable), have a nice chat, get prescriptions for hormone replacement pills, the latest anti- rheumatism and anti-arthritis drugs, sleeping tablets, food supplements and two weeks at a spa (all of them refundable). Go to the electricity, gas and water companies to confirm with them that it is illegal to switch off your supply even if you never pay the bill. Inform your landolord that it is illegal to evict you or increase your rent, even if your lease is up and the market value of the property means that it would not be Excessive to double your rent. England: Put on all your woollies, and have a nice cup of tea. Or move to France.”
  13. 13.  Differences aren’t always immediately obvious  Appearances can be deceiving!  Papers don’t always tell the truth about hospitals..even the Telegraph!  The French healthcare system is very, very good & lucky to have been a student there.  Perhaps in the future English hospitals will smell of Fresh Croissants, and in French outpatient clinics they’ll be drinking cups of tea?
