Spending on health and social care over the next 50 years: why think long term?
This report considers the drivers of spending on health and long-term
care, and asks whether spending must or should consume such large
proportions of GDP in the future, and the fiscal feasibility of this. It
examines the evidence that spending will inexorably rise, considers
projections and high-level modelling of future health spending both in
the United Kingdom and internationally, 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.
