Not a lot of hope for change in Portugal

After listening to Maria de Belém Roseira Pina, Chair of the Parliamentary Health Committee in Portugal I understand why Portugal scores so badly in all the Health Consumer Powerhouse rankings of healthcare. She actually said:

“The Patient should have what he needs and not what he wants”

I hope that she at least thinks it’s the patient´s physician and not her committee that should be the judge of what patients needs.
