Commissioner Vytenis Andriukaitis
23/11/2017

With just 2.8 doctors per 1000 population the United Kingdom has the third lowest number of doctors in the EU (ahead only of Romania and Poland) but its health system is one of the most equitable in terms of access, low levels of unmet need, low out-of-pocket spending, good financial protection and waiting times affecting all income groups equally. These are some of the findings published today by the European Commission, in an EU-wide study.

Distillation of terror

Since Gulf War 1, digital reporting on television and online has reshaped how we see conflicts. Against the immediacy of media imagery, Art, Conflict and Context provides an alternative perspective on war and its effects, drawing widely on John Keane's work including the struggle with Daesh and the impact of Guantanamo Bay.
