Health care needs of people with multiple conditions

A Health Foundation report found that one in four adults in England (14.2 million people) had two or more health conditions.

This group accounts for over half (55%) of hospital admissions and outpatient visits and three-quarters (75%) of primary care prescriptions. The report also found that people in the most deprived areas had developed two or more conditions by the age of 61, ten years earlier than those in the least deprived areas.
