But other comparisons also highlight the main challenges; the access to good health care depends on where you live, the flaws in service level and patient safety.

CARE – a centre with world class team and treatments
Recently the Centre for Advanced Reconstruction of Extremities (CARE) re-opened its doors after adjusting the facilities to better meet the needs of the patients coming for treatment. And the patients, they come from near and far.
The centre is unique in the sense that it offers highly specialized treatments – bone-anchored prostheses for amputees and hand surgery for tetraplegic patients – under one roof. These patient groups have different needs, but they all have one common goal – to increase their quality of life by becoming more independent. It is with this, and other individually specified wishes, in mind that the multidisciplinary medical team plan the treatment. There are synergies between the patient groups and the medical teams respectively that is of mutual benefit for the research and development carried out in this field. In other words, the medical team, also researchers, and the patients work in close interaction to ensure continuous improvement of the treatments offered.
