22 per cent of all health spending goes to people in their last year of life.

    Alternatively, is there less spent on the younger and healthier because (on average you understand) they don’t need it! I spend very little of my available time cleaning rooms that are already pretty clean, if you see what I mean!

    Clearly, people require greater medical intervention and care the more seriously ill they are, whether due to accident, disease or age.
    Is there a case for reducing the amount spent on the dying, given the inevitability of their deaths, to increase the chances of a longer life for younger and less ill people on whom more health resources can be targeted?
