The sea and inland rivers also play an important part in the transport and, therefore, overall infrastructure of England. In fact, there are about 7100 kilometres of navigable water in the country, including the Thames, Tyne and Mersey rivers.
The National Health System, known as the NHS, is another critical facet in the country’s infrastructure. The NHS provides most of the healthcare in England and is funded by the public. This healthcare system, which dates back to 1948, provides most medical services at no charge, with small costs in the areas of dental care, eye tests, etc...It is ultimately run by the Department of Health, but the private sector plays a more and more important role in its services and success.
A country cannot progress or develop without a good and ever-evolving infrastructure, as this determines accessibility and the superior quality of life (of opportunity for such) of its inhabitants. Therefore, England’s world-class infrastructure displays its prominence in the global arena.
