Percentages were calculated using given data.
Figures exclude expenditure on capital, but include consumption of capital.
Figures are provided in nominal terms (current prices), unadjusted for inflation.
Health Function (HC) refers to the the type of care and mode of provision.
Government financing covers healthcare spending by the NHS, local authorities and other government bodies involved in the provision of healthcare. Figures are reported net of client contributions and grants to charities.

The UK Health Accounts are produced according to the System of Health Accounts 2011 framework; a set of internationally standardised definitions for healthcare expenditure. These definitions are broader than those used in other UK analyses, and include some services typically considered social care in the UK.
