Comparison of US and UK Health Care Systems

UK and U.S. health care systems comparison Introduction

Roemer (1991) defines the term “healthcare system” as the combination of resources, organisation, financing and management that results in the delivery of health services to the population. People’s health are impacted by factors outside the healthcare system such as poverty education, infrastructure, the social environment, and the political environment (Annex, 2007). This notwithstanding, a successful healthcare system should provide accessible, quality, responsive, and affordable healthcare services to the population according to the World Health Organisation (WHO, 2015). Countries differ in the way their healthcare systems are organised and how they operate. In this paper, the U.K. and U.S. health care  systems will be analysed and compared. For each of these countries, the country profile will be presented and the organisation and functioning of their healthcare systems discussed. The paper will also discuss health care coverage, healthcare financing and expenditure, and access and quality of healthcare in the two countries. The paper concludes by briefly evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of the healthcare systems of each of the two countries – A Comparison of US and UK healthcare systems.
