Long live the NHS!

We often complain about the NHS and the papers tell us daily that it's in crisis, but let’s bear in mind that in a recent study by the Commonwealth Fund of 11 health systems (those of Sweden, France, Germany, and the US among them), the NHS was ranked top for “safe, effective, co-ordinated, efficient, patient-centred care”  :-))  (Info supplied by The Community Voice, a voluntary organisation that monitors the NHS in NW London and SW Herts.  They meet most months at Mount Vernon Hospital - next meeting: 7.45pm Thursday, 4 December when Dr Rowan Hillson MBE, the ex diabetes 'tsar' for England, will be speaking.)
