The fourth health systems of the United Kingdom: how do they compare?

Report that is the fourth in a series dating back to 1999 which looks at how the publicly financed health care systems in the four countries of the UK have fared before and after devolution.

The research looks at how the four national health systems compare and how they have performed in terms of quality and productivity before and after devolution. It also examines performance in North East England, which is acknowledged to be the region that is most comparable to Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland in terms of socioeconomic and other indicators.
