Healthcare cuts in Spain three times higher than European average

CUTS to healthcare in Spain were three times higher than the European average from 2009 to 2012.

In those year Spain reduced its healthcare spending by 1.9% a year, compared to a 0.6% average in the 35 countries examined in the OECD’s new Health at a Glance: Europe 2014 report.

Spain’s cuts were only exceeded by Greece, Luxembourg, Ireland, Croatia, Portugal and Cyprus.

However, Spain’s health spending level of 9.3% of GDP remains above the European average of 8.7%.
