Expenditure on healthcare in the UK

This report was published in May 2011.

“This article presents estimates of expenditure on healthcare in the UK that are consistent with international definitions.

The scope of expenditure on healthcare is wider than that of government and households. It covers any spending on healthcare irrespective of who pays for or provides the healthcare.

To aid international comparisons, expenditure on healthcare in the UK is expressed as a percentage of UK Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

The data are supplied to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and will be included in compendium publications of health statistics.

Note that this article supersedes the article ‘Expenditure on Health Care in the UK’ published in April 2010.”
