But which of the world’s cities has the best healthcare?

According to a study by the expat experts at William Russell, Taipei, the capital of Taiwan has the world’s best healthcare.

The team looked at the quality of healthcare, the number of healthcare staff, the quality of equipment and the cost to find the world’s best system.

A spokesperson said: “Among the many things we could say to recommend the Taipei healthcare system, it has incredibly short waiting times and fantastic accessibility.
