Javier Fernández-Lasquetty talks about reforms carried out in Madrid, Spain, during his tenure as health adviser in Madrid's regional government. He discusses an important change to the public health-care system, which allows patients to choose their own doctors and go to hospitals and clinics of their choice. Javier explains how the reform was achieved and which strategies worked and which failed.
