The brand new study by Healthcare Transformers has ranked health services across the country to reveal the top 20 places to live in England for the best quality healthcare, ranking North Yorkshire in second place.
The service for executive healthcare leaders searched nationally to find which regions provide the best healthcare and are regarded highly by its residents.
The North East and Yorkshire is the best NHS region for healthcare, with 16 locations ranking in the top 20. With a ranking of 73.6/100 in North Yorkshire CCG specifically, 97% of people reported confidence in their GP, and 96% said their needs were met at their last GP appointment. In this region, there are 7.08 GPs per 10,000 people – among the highest in the UK.
Stefan Schwarzer, digital marketing manager at Healthcare Transformers told West Wolds Radio:
“At Healthcare Transformers, we felt it was increasingly important to conduct this study because access to adequate healthcare should be a right, not a privilege. It’s important to be educated about individuals’ access to good healthcare across the world, so any inequalities in the space can be highlighted.
Our index makes clear across the UK, which countries and regions are performing well for healthcare and which are not quite there yet when it comes to health and support of their residents to hopefully affect change.”
