Health care costs are climbing to $2.1 trillion, up 9% from the same period last year, according to the UK’s Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC).
The report, released Wednesday, shows the cost of delivering a single patient to the hospital has risen from £2,739 to £3,929.
The average price of the same patient in the U.K. is now £3.4 million, which is higher than in France and Germany, but less than the £3 billion it cost in Germany in 2012.
The costs are increasing even as NHS England continues to slash funding.
The U.S. also has a higher cost of care, at $2,079.
Costs to the U,D.,H&S,GPs,NHS are also rising, the HSCIC said.
The cost of managing a patient has risen 10% from $1,000 in 2016 to $3,200 in 2018.
The median annual bill for a GP rose from $2 million in 2016, to $4.3 million in 2018, up from $4 million in 2015.NHS England says the average GP costs $1 million to $5 million.
The report also shows the average annual bill to the NHS for health care is up 11% from £1,039 in 2016 and £1.7 billion in 2018 to £1 trillion in 2018 and £2.7 trillion in 2020.
It also says costs for managing patients have risen by 13% from 2015 to 2020.
Dr Richard Jones, chief executive of the National Health Service in England (NHS), said costs to patients in England have risen because of a higher proportion of patients needing emergency care, including more complex and complex surgical procedures.
“There are more complex surgeries in England, so the cost is increasing as more patients require hospital care,” he said.
“The cost of caring for a complex patient is increasing at a faster rate than other areas of the country.”
Jones said the rise in the cost to patients was because of increased care, such as more intensive care, and a greater proportion of the population needing more intensive treatment.
“This is also in line with the rising number of people who are being treated for non-communicable diseases,” he added.
“As a result, more patients are getting hospital treatment in England.”
The HSCic report also found that while the proportion of people in England who receive primary care services increased by 0.4% in 2018-19, it rose faster in England and Wales.
In England and the U to D, the proportion receiving primary care increased by 4.3% while in Wales it increased by 5.7%.
The figures were released ahead of a debate in the House of Commons on Wednesday on plans to expand NHS funding to £7 billion by 2020.
The National Health Board is the UDR, or NHS England, which oversees the health service in England.
The figures also showed that more than half of the GPs were now registered nurses, which was up from 36% in 2016.
