Globalization of Healthcare: A U.K. Perspective

Peter Ellis


This commentary identifies the ability of the globalization of healthcare information and knowledge to empower populations and individuals. This, in turn, allows people to better hold to account the vested political and professional interests in order to provide or enable improvements to access and delivery of modern and effective health services. The author argues the importance of the wealth of the population to the availability of good healthcare and the contribution that healthcare industries and services could make to the economy of a particular country, notwithstanding its status as a developed, a developing or an underdeveloped nation.
