Nope. There's lots of other factors I'm not considering ...
where diminishing returns become significant, salaries of medical staff,
salaries of admin staff, capital costs, etc. Many of which could make a
significant difference.

Doesn't make a difference though ... all I'm saying is that public
health care systems are not inherently more expensive that private
health care systems. They could be more expensive, but as nobody in
Europe is paying as much as the US (and some far less) it doesn't appear

No I'm not ignoring quality of care, but nobody has come up with
figures to show that the US is significantly better than the UK (or
Europe). It may be better, but I don't believe there's that large a gap.
