Pediatricians are concerned about the future of our society, as their patients are more likely to die in the first place.
According to the latest figures from the British Pediatric Society, there are now 2.6 million people over the age of 65 in the UK.
They’re now the third-largest group of people in the country, and the third biggest in terms of the number of deaths they suffer.
But why are we talking about this when there are already some 3.6 billion people over 70 in the world?
The main reason is that the NHS is facing a funding crisis, with an average of £9,600 per patient for every year a patient is in hospital.
According to the British Medical Association, that’s a staggering £50 billion shortfall every year.
“Our patients need the best possible care and the NHS can’t deliver that now,” said Dr John Taylor, senior research fellow at the British Heart Foundation.
The NHS is under increasing pressure from the rising costs of its services, with it spending more than £300 billion ($425 billion) on NHS health-care funding last year.
But Dr Taylor warned that the funding crisis was not a new phenomenon.
We’ve been seeing it for a long time, he said.
And it’s not only about the NHS.
“People are increasingly turning to other sources of income.
So when the NHS falls behind, people turn to alternative sources of funding, such as personal savings, to fund their care,” he said
