Spending on health and social care over the next 50 years

The King’s Fund report considers the drivers of spending on health and long-term care.

It asks whether it is feasible or necessary for spending to consume such large proportions of GDP in future. The report examines the evidence that spending will inexorably rise, considers projections and high-level modelling of future health spending both in the United Kingdom and abroad and debates alternative systems of assessing current and future spending. It also suggests a need for engaged and informed public debate about the choices to be made in future spending on health and social care.
