UK healthcare standards in areas such as breast cancer survival rates and heart attack death rates are below the average of Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries.
New figures from the group show that in the UK, 78.5 per cent of breast cancer sufferers live longer than five years, compared to 90.5 per cent in the US, which had the highest survival rates.
The UK, which was in 12th position in the table, was one place below the OECD average, which stands at 81.2 per cent. Countries outperforming Britain in breast cancer survival rates included Iceland, Canada, Sweden, Finland and the Netherlands.
Sweden and Canada also scored higher than the UK in bowel cancer survival rates and heart attack death rates, the study showed.
The survey comes less than a month after the HSBC International Expat Experience survey, which named Canada the best country in the world for expats.
