UK health system comes out top in new report


The UK was rated first out of 11 countries in a report published by the Commonwealth Fund on international healthcare systems.

The report compared the UK to healthcare systems in the US, Switzerland, Sweden, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada, New Zealand, Norway and Australia.

The report ranks the UK first overall and first for care process (prevention, safe care, coordination and patient engagement) and equity (comparison of performance for higher and lower-income individuals). The UK also scores highly in terms of getting value out of the money the tax payer puts in.
