Half of hospital costs are on over-60s

17th May 2012

Analysis of the Hospital Episode Statistics payment by results (PbR) data has revealed that the over-60s account for nearly half of hospital admissions in England and more than half of hospital income from admissions.

Figures show that 43% of all hospital admissions paid under mandatory PbR were of people aged over 60 and accounted for £10.9bn, or 51% of hospitals’ income from admissions that attracted a mandatory PbR tariff in the year to March 2011. Hospitals’ average income per patient was £2,708, though this masks differences between individual hospitals because of their level of specialist activity.
