The NHS England is the largest single-payer healthcare system in the world, with an annual budget of over £100 Billion. There are over 15 million patients in England who are coping with at least one long-term health condition. These chronic conditions not only negatively impact patients’ quality of life, but also account for over half of all General Practitioner (GP) appointments and 70% of hospital bed days. NHS England has estimated that improvements in self-care in this population could result in £584m in savings by 2021.
