"The reform gave us an expensive and complicated new system. But let's try to make it work."
I retired in 2016, after working over 40 years as a dentist on a private clinic in Helsinki. In the eighties and nineties I also was a deputy in the city council and the chairman of the party SFP in Espoo for a period.

The administration of the new health- and social care system will be expensive. We need the private healthcare sector to take care of a large portion of the primary healthcare also in the future, and we have to keep the cost affordable.
Big units might be able to provide better service, but we also need smaller hospitals closer to the patients.
