“The people of the UK are right to treasure their NHS,” writes Mark Britnell in his new book In Search of the Perfect Health System (Palgrave Macmillan). Currently chairman of KPMG Global Health, Britnell has worked in healthcare systems in over 60 countries. For his book he analysed 25 healthcare systems in search of what was working and what wasn’t in times of challenging demographic and economic change. He doesn’t find perfection, but against the others the NHS measures up pretty well.
