Healthcare In 11 Rich Countries, From Best To Worst

11. United Kingdom

The United Kingdom ranks first as the best healthcare system among wealthy nations. The country’s healthcare is administered universally by the National Health Service (NHS), so there are no direct costs to patients. According to the CWF report, it scores the highest among the Efficiency, Access and Quality categories. It also ranks first in Coordinated Care, without which the costs of treatment would be increased. Eighty-seven percent of patients receive information for follow-up appointments, and the country is one of the best for engaging patients on a regular basis.
