The healthcare in England is provided by the public health service, the National Health Services (NHS), that mainly provide healthcare to all the residents of the United Kingdom. The health care in the country is mainly funded through general taxation. Health is one of the devolved matters in the United Kingdom. This means there are legal provisions that allow for each country to manage its NHS. Although the healthcare system has been dominated by the public sector, the private sector is also making inroads with most NHS contracts going to the private sector.
