This release contains updated output, inputs and productivity estimates for publicly-funded healthcare in the UK between 1995 and 2010. It provides analysis of healthcare output by component and describes the impact of the quality-adjustment factor that is applied. Healthcare inputs are analysed by component. New analysis of changes in the average cost of providing healthcare is presented and compared to growth in the GDP deflator. For most of the 15 year period since 1995, productivity has remained broadly constant. The period 2003 to 2006 saw some improvement in productivity which has since levelled off or slightly declined.
