    Health Care Education in My Country (UK)

    There is an increase in major diseases in the UK, such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, lung disease and liver disease. The National Health Service (NHS) is the main healthcare provider in the UK and they are working with Health Education of England (HEE) and local education providers to improve healthcare for future generations.

    The NHS was founded after the second world war in order to improve the lives of the public. It was based on the grounds that people from all walks of life should have access to healthcare, regardless of their wealth or status. From its opening in July 1948, the healthcare services focussed on 3 main principles: to meet the needs of every individual, be free at the point of delivery, and should be based on clinical needs, not ability to pay.

    The NHS has developed over decades, learning that prevention of disease is paramount as it would reduce the cost of healthcare whilst increasing the longevity of the public. Some of the diseases mentioned above result in premature death and can be prevented or delayed by means of awareness, education and early treatment.

    The HEE exists to maintain the delivery of healthcare, to support improvements in the system for patients and the general public, but also maintain the health of the public via education. There are currently more than 160,000 students studying to be part of the future workforce; from doctors, nurses, midwives, paramedics and physiotherapists with over 300 other different types of jobs performed by more than one million people in the NHS. This means that the HEE can have a huge impact on the future changes within healthcare, by ensuring the future workforce has the right skills, values and education.

    The healthcare system is run by a government body called the Department of Health which coordinates with the HEE and local education providers. To improve the system and to maximise the effectiveness, the main strategy is to focus on the prevention of illness and increase education of the diseases, its mechanisms and, treatment during different stages of the disease. This is done early by educating people at a very young age about the seriousness of obesity, smoking and sexual health. They continue education at high school with details about the mechanisms of preventable diseases and how they are caused by poor lifestyle and also lifestyle changes that can prevent them. Healthcare Education at universities is also affected as the HEE can also direct the syllabus for training medical professionals of the future by stressing the early warning signs of these illnesses and the treatments available.

    Personally, I think there is good education in the UK but the method of teaching students at a young age has a flaw due to the fact it does not take into the account that the parents possibly lack the knowledge to help the child uptake the healthier lifestyle. The government still allows advertisements for fast food, continues to sell cigarettes, makes sugary food and drinks cheaper than healthy fresh foods which are too costly for an average individual. This shapes an individual mentally and impacts them socially. Mental health is still stigmatised and mental healthcare is not well advertised. With the education system stuck in the 1900s, the focus on grades and competition amongst peers causes an increase in mental problems and depression. Maybe with the next generation of medical professionals and government officials, they may be able to ban the negative advertisements and focus on education for parents as well as the students, and include mental health as a higher weighted taught topic.
