The Netherlands has been ranked first among the health services of seven developed countries, according to a Commonwealth Fund study.

The UK scored highest for access and efficiency and placed second overall, above Australia, Canada, Germany, New Zealand and the US.

The NHS was ranked worst, however, for patient-centred delivery in terms of quality of care and second-to-last in giving people “long, healthy and productive lives”.

US healthcare was ranked last or next-to-last on five dimensions of the Commonwealth Fund’s criteria, despite being the most expensive service.

The three-year survey heard from 27,000 patients and primary care doctors from across the seven countries.
