What makes a nation a great place to live?
The UK has the third highest rate of inequality in the OECD and the poorest health outcomes, according to a new report by the World Economic Forum.
However, the findings, which focus on health and wellbeing in the UK, show that the country is far from perfect, and there is plenty of room for improvement.
The report shows that the UK is not the only developed country with a bad reputation for healthcare.
In contrast, it is far and away the most developed country on the planet.
This is because it is the only one of the G7 nations that does not provide universal healthcare, the report said.
In the report, the World Forum looked at healthcare and poverty and found that the NHS in the US is the best in the world.
The UK also has the highest rate per capita of mental illness in the EU and is the world’s best in terms of infant mortality.
It also has one of Europe’s lowest rates of childhood deaths and the highest proportion of children living in poverty.
The country is also the world leader in the proportion of people with mental health problems, the authors of the report found.
They added that the number of people without access to quality healthcare has risen from 2.1 million in 2005 to 2.4 million in 2018.
However this number was still only 1.4 per cent of the population.
The number of mentally ill people in the country rose from 1.2 million in 2010 to 2 million in 2020, according the report.
The authors added that while the overall health and mental wellbeing of the UK was great, there were also areas that needed improvement.
“In particular, there was a clear disconnect between the health and social wellbeing of older people and those of young people, and this had a significant impact on the health of older and poorer people,” the report says.
There were also challenges in accessing healthcare in the north-east of England, where the report shows there were 3,800 deaths from hospital-acquired diseases between 2013 and 2018.
There is also evidence that the rate of the NHS’s funding of mental health care has dropped significantly since 2010, and the number is projected to fall further in the coming years.
The new report highlights the challenges faced by the UK’s healthcare system, as well as highlighting the need to address issues like gender inequalities.
It found that women were twice as likely to die from a health problem, and were three times more likely to be living in households that had a history of depression, substance abuse and anxiety disorders.
“We need to do more to ensure that women and people of colour are included in the discussion on how best to improve the health, wellbeing and health outcomes of women, people of color and the disabled,” the authors concluded.
