What is happening to life expectancy in the UK?
Based on the annual bulletin of the Office of National Statistics, this Kings Fund report provides a statistical update of trends in life expectancy in the UK. Healthy life expectancy is an estimate of the number of years lived in ‘very good’ or ’good’ general health. The gap between healthy life expectancy in the most and least deprived parts of the country is increasing an is an important indicator of continued social inequality. The King’s Fund speculates that this will only get worse as a result of Covid-19.
