The NHS has been ranked as having one of the best primary health care systems in the world by the respected Commonwealth Fund. Learn more here.
This has only been achieved because of the hard work of NHS staff, and because of Labour’s investment in and commitment to our NHS.
Doctors from around the world were surveyed on their healthcare systems. The NHS was rated the best in several areas: only British doctors rated the quality of care as continually improving, and the NHS is the least likely to report long waiting times for patients referred for specialist care.
For instance thanks to Labour, if your GP suspects you may have cancer, you will be referred to a specialist within two weeks – it‘s a guarantee. A fast diagnosis followed by timely and effective treatment is a big part in the fight against cancer.
