Supplementary notes

Previous updates used data from a series called "Expenditure on health care in the UK" which has been discontinued by the ONS as it did not adhere to the definitions of healthcare expenditure as defined under the System of Health Accounts (SHA 2011) framework as it excludes several components, such as long-term care, and includes capital spending on health care.
Therefore data is now from the UK Health Accounts, which are produced according to the System of Health Accounts 2011 framework; a set of internationally standardized 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.
