beschrijving

(Let op: dit is een Engelstalig boek!)

This is a story of the arrogance, indifference, and childlike denial all too familiar in the faltering medical systems that taxpayers across the western world struggle to fund, yet which, ironically, they ultimately own. But it is more than that: it is the story of one woman’s odyssey through the medical system of a modern European country, and her clear-eyed account of where it succeeds and where it fails. At its heart is her terrifying realization that alongside the compassion, the empathy, and the vocation to help, in which medicine, quite rightly, takes such pride, lies a dangerous lack of attention to detail, a deeply ingrained indifference to the input of patients, and, all too often, a determination to evade personal responsibility at all costs when things go wrong.
