Yesterday, OECD published the Heath at a Glance Report 2011, analyzing countries’ relative positions against each other. It is very powerful analysis and quickly raises questions for healthcare professionals and policymakers.
There are also a number of country specific summaries, including Health at a Glance 2011: OECD Indicators Key Findings United Kingdom.
For me there are three open questions:
1. Does the UK Government have the right policies?
2. Has national spending on healthcare being effectively deployed?
3. How will austerity cuts impact future healthcare outcomes?
