    Findings The assessment of visual signs of jaundice in newborn babies is subjective and more challenging with babies who have black or brown skin. Stakeholders have differing opinions about the reliability of visual signs to detect jaundice in newborn babies. Some neonatal units have introduced safety measures to mitigate the risk of reliance on visual signs of jaundice. National guidance does not recommend routinely measuring bilirubin levels in babies who are not visibly jaundiced. National guidance for jaundice in newborn babies maybe more applicable to term b

    Key findings In England, Scotland and Wales, life expectancy and healthy life expectancy at birth are lowest for people living in more deprived areas. On average, people in the most deprived 10% of local areas are expected to live a shorter life than those in the least deprived areas. They are also more likely to spend more of their life in poor health. Of these three countries, Scotland has the largest difference between people in the most deprived 10% of local areas and those in the least deprived. This is true both for healthy life expectancy (25 years for men and 21.5 ye

    Key points Average day-to-day health spending in the UK between 2010 and 2019 was £3,005 per person – 18% below the EU14 average of £3,655. If UK spending per person had matched the EU14 average, then the UK would have spent an average of £227bn a year on health between 2010 and 2019 – £40bn higher than actual average annual spending during this period (£187bn). Matching spending per head to France or Germany would have led to an additional £40bn and £73bn (21% to 39% increase respectively) of total health spending each year in the UK. Over the past decade, the UK had

    The report recommends the following actions to address the threat of AMR: NHS England, in collaboration with NICE, should urgently commission a national assessment of the clinical and cost-effectiveness of using rapid diagnostic tools. As part of this assessment, differences in the effectiveness of using diagnostics to support prescribing in primary and secondary care should be considered. NHS England should centrally purchase diagnostic tools, to more rapidly increase the percentage of prescriptions that are supported by a diagnostic test, drawing on evidence collected from the
