Place of publication:

A summary of recent trends in life expectancy among those aged 65 and over in England, in the English regions and local authorities. The report shows that the overall upward trend in life expectancy at all older ages continues. Life expectancy at older ages in England is now the highest on record for all the age and sex groups studied, except for females aged 85, for whom it is the same as it was in 2011. The report shows however, that despite this overall picture of improvement, calculated life expectancy for older people in some parts of the country did not increase or fell. At English local authority level there are significant variations in the trend in life expectancy at older age for which there is no apparent explanation. The report also includes trends in life expectancy in the European Union. (Edited publisher abstract)

This report presents the results of the finance mapping exercise carried out as part of the autumn review process. It provides details of the level of investment in mental health services for older people’s mental health services (OPMH) covering people aged 65 and above, in England for 2011/12 and compares it with the reported results in previous in OPMH in England since 2006/07. Overall, 87% of OPMH investment by value was reported with only 13% being estimated – a little higher estimation than last year but still very creditable for a non-mandatory collection. Return rates were better from PCTs than Local Authorities (89% investment reported compared to 84%). The largest area of non-returns was the same as the working age adult survey, from the West Midlands area which consequently has a much higher level of estimation. Total reported overall cash investment in OPMH mental health services fell by -1.00% from £2.859 billion in 2010/11 to £2.830 billion in 2011/12. 62% of the OPMH services in 2011/12 were commissioned by PCTs and 38% reported commissioned by Local Authorities.
