UK Healthcare Services website


Welcome to the Healthcare Services website. Our website has been set up in order to provide answers to any questions about Healthcare Services you might have, and is full of links and resources on the subject.

The United Kingdom’ s National Health Service remains a free source of healthcare provision for all British citizens, and therefore is currently dealing with a potential user base of just under seventy million people.

It is their point of contact for every kind of ailment or problem, from small matters such as cold and flu, to pregnancy issues like antenatal screening, all the way up to serious surgery, untreatable diseases, and of course emergency care. In England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland the different National Health Service authorities manage their services differently, but their funding comes from the same source, national taxation.

On the whole, despite minor differences in management, they all run in identical ways, and represent a single and coherent system of care.

This covers everything from General Practitioners, pharmacies, hospitals for both in-patient, out-patient and emergency care, opticians, dentists, social work and mental health.

The United Kingdom’s National Health Service is in a constant state of review and restructuring in order to better cope with the fluctuating healthcare needs of the population.

One focus is the commitment to increasing the degree of choice available to patients for treatment and for access, and this relies on getting good feedback from end-users about what they need and want. We are always keen to hear what you think about our Healthcare Services website.

Bridging Studies – Conducted by Clinical Research Organisations, Bridging Studies are designed to gather accurate data on the different effects that new chemical entities have on different ethnic populations. Health Authorities such as the MHRA (UK) set out the guidelines for conducting these clinical studies. CRO’s follow the guidance and regulations set out by the different countries health authorities.

The United Kingdom’s National health Service is the envy of the world, representing as it does the biggest public health service on the globe, and also being a model for how public healthcare services should be run.

It started life as the NHS Prescription Service before becoming the National Health Service, and eventually turning into the model for all publicly funded healthcare services, and a constant source of pride for the United Kingdom around the world.

Unless the amount of carbohydrate and fat in the diet is reduced to a level comparable with the degree of inactivity obesity becomes a possibility. This is particularly likely in a well-developed, affluent, country where access to food and pressure from advertising can also fuel temptation.

Obesity places a strain particularly on the cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems. This can ultimately lead to further inactivity as the effort and energy involved in moving makes inactivity the easier option, and increases the risk of metabolic disorders such as type 2 diabetes mellitus.
