Britons are among the most satisfied of Europeans with their healthcare systems, a poll for European health insurer Europ Assistance has found. It found that 72% of UK respondents had a positive opinion of their healthcare system compared with just 17% of Poles and 29% of Italians. But Brits were worried about hospital infections and that spending cuts could hurt the NHS.
