Irish doctor with too many thoughts, too little time and a blog that's supposed to check in on reality.

St James's, Next Stop Cuba.

Wulfbeorn, Watching has a post on Sinn Fein's Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin's wish to learn from the "Cuban Health Care Experience."

Wulfbeorn goes out on a limb and surmises that "he wasn't referring to the thousands of people who've risked their lives trying to escape the dictatorship on homemade rafts and converted vehicles. That doesn't seem like much of an "experience" to me."

Perhaps, Deputy O'Caolain prefers this sort of Cuban Experience. (All photos here)

I suppose some eagle-eyed microbiology spotter will tell us that Irish hospitals are as dirty. I've worked in 5 of the major Dublin hospitals and a few of the regional ones - let me assure you that they're not.

We believe in advancing healthcare for patients, not advancing fairy tales for revolutionary propaganda.

Great links there auds. Cuban healthcare is, dare I say it, not as great as we are led to believe.
