Health Care in England

The Healthcare in England is universal because it covers all permanent resident of the country and it’s free as they pay the general taxes for it. The public health system is financed by the National Health Service (NHS), which uses the general taxation, the national insurance contributions and other user charges. By the other hand, the private sector of medical care offers higher standards of comfort but a lesser set of treatments; therefore, many of the patients are treated in NHS hospitals where the patient or the insurance company is billed.

The Parliament of Westminster has the responsibility of the health legislation and policy matters and there are other Departments that have the responsibility to ensure the quality of health services of public and private providers such as The Commission for Social Care Inspection, The Healthcare Commission, and the Mental Health Act Commission.

The Healthcare System includes the access to health to all public schools to protect and promote the health of students and children around the country.
