[Comment] Offline: The UK’s child health emergency

Last week, Britain celebrated the 70th anniversary of the National Health Service (NHS). It was hard to understand why. Some of the most reliable assessments of health systems come from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, based at the University of Washington in Seattle. Its Universal Health Coverage Index, which measures nine tracer interventions, together with risk-standardised death rates for 32 causes of death, last year placed the UK 19th out of 22 countries in western Europe. The health systems of Finland, Iceland, Switzerland, Norway, Sweden, Luxembourg, Spain, the Netherlands, Austria, Andorra, Italy, France, Ireland, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Greece, and Cyprus all outperformed the UK.
