Britain lacks world-class hospitals

12th January 2010

William Moyes, chairman of Monitor, has said that the UK does not have any "world-class" hospitals. 

Mr Moyes has overseen the set-up and regulation of NHS foundation trusts since 2004. He said: "I do not believe we have any world-class hospitals. They may have world experts here and there ... but I just don’t believe that any of our best hospitals could genuinely demonstrate that they are world-class across the whole range of what they do." He added that trusts had to worry too much about what was going on in government and should be allowed more independence.
