Since 1948, the United Kingdom (UK) has
operated a National Health Service funded primarily
through public taxation where health
services are available based on need and free at
the point of delivery with limited out-of-pocket
copayment. Other European predominantly
public taxation funded systems operate, for
example, in Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Italy.
Domestic policy decisions have been devolved
from London and England to Wales, Scotland
and Northern Ireland since 1999, although for the
latter full devolution did not really occur until
2007. One consequence of devolution has been the
growing divergence in policy and practice across
the four countries within the United Kingdom.
This digest summarizes the evolution of key
policies across the United Kingdom and then
identifies some of the distinctions between the
four different administrations.
