UK Parliament Health Select Committee Report on Long-Term Conditions
Posted on: July 7 2014, 12:07 pm

This report will be of interest to UKCAB members who take an interest in health policy, and specifically as it relates to the care and treatment provided in England for people living with one or more long-term diagnosed health condition.

The key points made in the report are:

 - The NHS in England may need to find an additional 4bn every year to care for people with long-term conditions

- There has been an increase in the number of people living with long-term conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, dementia and arthritis.

- This rise has been accompanied by an increase in the number of people living with more than one long-term condition

- Caring for people living with one or more long-term condition accounts for around 70% of the NHS budget in England.

- The evidence is that demand for services is currently exceeding available funding available

- Current estimates are that the NHS spends around 1,000 a year treating someone with one long-term condition, 3,000 on someone with two conditions, and 8,000 a year on someone with three conditions.

- Current estimates are that there are 15 million people living with a long-term condition in England; this is likely to become 18 million over the next decade.
