This report assesses the performance of the NHS on the quality of patient care in all four UK countries since devolution. It attempts to update earlier comparisons of the publicly financed health systems of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland in terms of funding, inputs and performance before and since devolution. It also includes comparisons with the North East of England, which has been chosen as a better comparator with the three devolved nations than England as a whole. It gives trends over time for a wider range of performance indicators from the late 1990s to 2011/12, or 2012/13 where data were available.
