UK National Health Service Company Profile
In England, health care may be (mostly) free, but somebody has to watch over it. The National Health Service (NHS) administers the country's health care and dental services, with funding and support from its Department of Health. The system is divided into 10 regional strategic health authorities, and those are divided into trusts, which include about 40,000 doctors and more than 500,000 other providers such as dentists, nurses, and ambulance staff. The NHS provides care through gatekeeper physicians (sometimes referred to as "consultants") who direct patients to specialists and more complex treatment as needed.
