Statista dossier on the state of health in the United Kingdom (UK)

This dossier presents a range of statistics and facts about the state of health in the United Kingdom. Since the establishment of the National Health Service, life expectancy has been rising and infant mortality rates have been falling. However, as people are now living longer lives the rate of longstanding illness and disease is increasing. This dossier covers chapters on the issues of life expectancy, long-term conditions, cardiovascular disease, respiratory illness, and opinions of the British public regarding digital healthcare.
