The 2014 update from the US based Commonwealth Fund on its ongoing research into the efficiency and value for money of the world's leading health services provides a stunning endorsement for the NHS:

In 12 categories the NHS comes top in 9 in this group of elite countries. It comes second in another and 3rd on timeliness. Unfortunately, we still choose to live unhealthy lives.

What is more it is stunningly cost effective: just look at that bottom line. In terms of bangs per buck we beat the world.

So why is the government so determined to destroy what we have?
