Case Study: India

Comparing Community health services in India and the UK is a difficult task both countries have their own way of tackling health care related problems and providing best health care at patient’s home. Health care in India is divided into 3 levels Primary, Secondary and Tertiary which is a combination of Public and private sectors providing care to the citizens were as in the UK NHS is providing the maximum care to the public.

In India citizens do not pay national insurance and so not all procedures are free a small amount is charged for major procedures
but in the UK, citizens pay national insurance and so almost all procedures are free of cost. In the UK much of patient’s records are handled online were as in India the records are taken care by MRD (medical records department) of each community health centres so a generalized form of documentation is lacking. In India a patient has to go to the nearest community sub centre for much of care but in the UK community nurses maintain regular visit to the patient’s accommodation.

Physiotherapy is not included in community health in India; the patients who require physiotherapy are referred to the multi specialist hospitals where patients are provided with rehabilitative care and treatment, whereas in the UK rehabilitation centres are fulfilling such jobs.
