A reflection back on the #NHS review ( and some differences between #US and #UK #healthcare:
1. The #1 source of jobs in both countries is from healthcare, which continues to rise with a steep slope (mostly non-physicians)

The #US now spends more than $11,000 per person for healthcare, while the #UK ~$4,000. Yet life expectancy has declined in the #US for each of the past 3 years, while it continues to increase in the #UK (graph adopted from @OurWorldInData)

3. The @commonwealthfnd ranks the #UK first and the #US last of 11 countries overall, with differences in 5 sub-categories charted here
