Can You Guess Which Healthcare System has Been Voted Number One?

It may be facing a budget squeeze, understaffing and disruption, but for the second consecutive time, our National Health Service has ranked the number one healthcare system out of eleven surveyed worldwide.

The survey, which was carried out by the Commonwealth Fund, included the following countries:

(Accurate ranking order)

  1. UK
  2. Australia
  3. Netherlands
  4. Norway
  5. New Zealand
  6. Sweden
  7. Switzerland
  8. Germany
  9. Canada
  10. France
  11. United States

This survey is carried out once every three years, but this is the second time in a row that the UK’s healthcare system has been ranked at number one. According to the survey, the UK actually ranks the fourth smallest for the amount of GDP into healthcare, with an investment of only 9.9% in comparison to the US’ 16.6%.

UK Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, praised NHS staff. “These outstanding results are a testament to the dedication of NHS staff who, despite pressure on the frontline are delivering safer, more compassionate care than ever,” he said.

Your World Healthcare is extremely proud to be an NHS supplier, working with some of the most talented and dedicated healthcare professionals throughout the United Kingdom.
