Introducing The NSVNHS©

That would be the Not So Vaunted National Health Service©.

And what, you may ask, prompts this new accreditation?


"UK now has one of the worst healthcare systems in the developed world"

Well, that's just according to some disgruntled blogger, right? Not any actual, respected authority.


"The verdict, from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) ... the quality of care in the UK is “poor to mediocre” across several key health areas"


Still, it's not like the scheme is scraping the bottom of the barrel on key metrics.

Wait, what?

"The UK came 21st out of 23 countries on cervical cancer survival, 20th out of 23 countries on breast and bowel cancer survival and 19th out of 31 countries on stroke."

Fortunately, a quick fix is easily applied.


"Mark Pearson, OECD Deputy Director of Employment, Labour and Social Affairs, said many medics were too rushed to improve the care they give."

But hey, it's free!
