This is the latest updated volume in a well-established series bringing together information from a variety of sources to estimate national unit costs for a wide range of health and social care services. This report consists of tables for approaching 100 types of service which, as well as providing the most detailed and comprehensive information possible, also quotes sources and assumptions so users can adapt the information for their own purposes. This year we have included a guest editorial: Estimating medication costs for economic evaluation; and two articles: Health care costs in the English NHS: reference tables for average annual NHS spend by age, sex and deprivation group, and a survey of English dental practices with costs in mind. There are new schemas for sexual health services, self-management programmes, advocacy and counselling for children, positive behavioural support for adults, the costs of perinatal anxiety and depression and supported living homes for adults with autism and complex needs.

Please note that until the 2017 UC Report is printed (expected early February 2018), the online version is subject to change. Any revisions made after the print run will be listed on this page.
