Incentivising Wellness shows how the NHS can save tens of billions of pounds while also taking better care of one of the UK’s fastest-growing diseases – diabetes.
Careless argues that introducing free personal care funded by general taxation is far too expensive. The report instead recommends that three specific funding models be considered by the Coalition's Commission on the funding of care and support long-term.
The report highlights late diagnosis, poor survival rates for older people and those in deprived communities, and relatively poor take up of new treatments and technologies as being the most likely causes behind the UK’s comparatively high mortality rate for cancer patients.
