The World Health Organisation published the report, "The World Health Report 2000 - Health Systems : Improving Performance"
This lists 190 countries in order of countries with the best to countries with the worst health.
Any guesses where the UK came?
Go on, have a guess. Pick a number from 1 to 190. Got it? Good. Now, have a rummage around at the rankings and see how you fared.
I was pleasantly surprised.
