Publicly funded healthcare system of England. It is the largest and the oldest single-payer healthcare system in the world. It is able to function in the way that it does because it is primarily funded through the general taxation system, in a similar fashion to the funding model for fire departments, police departments, and primary schools. The system provides healthcare to anyone normally legally resident in England, and also any other part of the United Kingdom (should a person from another UK area be travelling in England, for example), with almost all services free at the point of use for all such people.

Wikipedia states "The National Health Service Act 1946 came into effect on 5 July 1948.". A forum discussion pointed to a news article, http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/wales_politics/7633830.stm which reported the birth of the first NHS baby: "Aneira Thomas was born at Amman Valley Hospital in Carmarthenshire at 00.01am BST on 5th July, making her the first NHS baby. She was named after Aneurin Bevan." Bevan was the minister of health, who had spearheaded the establishment of the National Health Service.
