Today, our healthcare system has been ranked the best healthcare system of 11 wealthy countries by the independent think tank The Commonwealth Fund. The NHS came top in 5 of the 11 areas assessed, including access and safety of care.
Not only does the NHS rank the highest in measures related to the equity of health systems with respect to access and care process, but it also ranks first based on the performance across prevention, safe care, coordination, and patient engagement. This is a clear reflection of the dedication of NHS staff who, despite increasing pressures, are delivering safer, more compassionate care than ever. ‎
