Private health insurance is gaining ground in Sweden. Insurance companies are latching on to the trend by launching new types of health coverage.

Taking out private health insurance has gone up by 9 percent since the same period last year, an increase despite the ideological debate around private health insurance.
There are also more types of insurance covers available, including insurance for specific illnesses and also for healthcare abroad.

Local governments say medicine shortages impacting patient safety

The long-lasting shortage of medicines in Sweden is now having an impact on patient safety, representatives of 17 of the country’s 21 counties told a Swedish radio survey.

Hundreds of medicines are currently unavailable in Sweden, and while alternatives can be found, there are still safety risks being created for patients as a result.

In one example, a patient was given a dosage of blood thinner that was five times too high because the usual medication was back-ordered, and staff had failed to notice the change.
