NHS fails to make top 10 health systems29th September 2009

Dr Arne Björnberg, Director of the Euro Health Consumer Index, said: "The UK in 2009 has showed surprisingly negative feedback from patient organisations on the waiting time situation, particularly after government spending on the NHS has been increasing heavily.
It seems that management of the behemoth NHS organisation is difficult to do under a centralised paradigm."
