2022 is going to be lovely for our health care system if the UK is any indication.
A reminder that the UK has a lot more hospital capacity than Canada.
But here is to everyone with hope.
Okay, I'm being sarcastic but the usual measurement of national "hospital capacity" is beds per 1000 population. https://data.oecd.org/healtheqt/hospital-beds.htm
(for quick visual - orange bar is UK, red bar is Canada)
But that is not to say that Canada's health care resources are equal to the UK's; there are many factors that contribute to the picture. The other quick measurement is physicians per population.
UK just scrapes past us at 2.8 per 100k compared to our 2.7
That being said, could you explain your statement re UK greater hospital capacity.
