Details of the endeavor are understandably lacking, but in the absence of those details we can speculate about what a healthcare system free of a profit motive might look like.

Whether or not the advent of a new Gregorian or lunar New Year (the Year of the Dog starts 16 February) is important to you, most of us, however atavistically, attach significance to arbitrary markers of the passage of time. As this New Year lurched to its feet I found myself reflecting on the past year and what it held for psychology and mental health.
