About

In the recent past, the United States has treated health care as a market commodity, while the United Kingdom has considered it a sacred element in its welfare state.  This stark contrast dates from 1948, but roots of the different health care systems were evident almost 200 years ago.
Today, important elements of this contrast appear to be dissolving as both countries struggle to deliver equitable and affordable services that meet public expectations.  Policy experts in the U.K. have looked to U.S. market principles as a basis for making substantial changes in the British National Health Service (NHS).  At the same time, many in the U.S. believe we should draw on the philosophy of the NHS to help us reform health care in our country.  Both the US and the UK have undertaken very substantial health reform efforts that are proving to be controversial.
