Dr. Markus Björkström of Hälsocentralen, located at Sophiahemmet Hospital in Stockholm, discusses the benefits of private healthcare in Sweden. He emphasizes the continuity of care, with patients seeing the same doctor consistently, and the ability to get quick appointments and longer consultation times.

09 Nov 2014  |  Mail Online
Sophie Miskiw shares her personal struggle with health anxiety, which began in childhood and escalated with the advent of the internet, particularly Google and WebMD, which fueled her self-diagnoses. Despite physical health, she experienced debilitating anxiety, leading to social isolation and academic challenges. A breakdown at her mother's house led to a doctor's visit, where her anxiety was acknowledged as a mental health issue. She was advised to practice meditation and was prescribed an SSRI. Dr. David Veale of the Maudsley Hospital notes that health anxiety can be exacerbated by early exposure to medical issues and is more common in women. Sophie's recovery involved counseling, medication, and support from her boyfriend. She now manages her anxiety and has completed her master's degree, working as a freelance writer.
