I came across this super compendium of data for the NHS that the British taxpaying public pay for and share with more and more immigrants with every day that goes bye.
I was searching for the figures as relate to the opium consumption by the NHS, because as the media is apt to focus on opium in the form of heroin, which immediately fixes all minds to the underworld and drug dealers, they never ever speak of the opium consumption straight out of Afghanistan and straight into the medical mafia paws to be administered to Grandma and Granddad, and any other trusting soul that they can trap within the addiction web..
A rather threatening bit of data as it relates to mental health, which of course today, given the corporate state promotes through every available orifice, is very importance, we find that 58,399 people were detained under the Mental Health Act in 2014/15. Looks a little like the concentration camp scoop up mentality is in full swing, just out of sight..
All the same as I continue my search for opium use by the NHS I offer you this super insight into the death camp network that is the British National Health Service.
Key statistics on the NHS. This data was last updated in October 2015. The figures apply to England, unless otherwise stated.
NHS net expenditure (resource plus capital, minus depreciation) has increased from £64.173 billion in 2003/04 to £113.300bn in 2014/15. Planned expenditure for 2015/16 is £116.574bn.
Health expenditure (medical services, health research, central and other health services) per capita in England has risen from £1,841 in 2009/10 to £1,994 in 2013/14.
The NHS net deficit for the 2014/15 financial year was £471 million (£372m underspend by commissioners and a £843m deficit for trusts and foundation trusts).
The most recently published national surveys of investment for mental health found there had been real terms reductions of 1 per cent for working age adults and 3.1 per cent for older people in 2011/12.
Providers and commissioners of NHS services

However in the category of healthy lives (10th), the NHS fared less well.

Health and population
Life expectancy for UK men in 2011-13: 78.9 years.
Life expectancy for UK women in 2011-13: 82.7 years
The UK population is projected to increase from an estimated 63.7 million in mid-2012 to 67.13 million by 2020 and 71.04 million by 2030.
The UK population is expected to continue ageing, with the average age rising from 39.7 in 2012 to 42.8 by 2037.
The number of people aged 65 and over is projected to increase from 10.84m in 2012 to 17.79m by 2037. As part of this growth, the number of over-85s is estimated to more than double from 1.44 million in 2012 to 3.64 million by 2037.
The number of people of State Pension Age (SPA) in the UK exceeded the number of children for the first time in 2007 and by 2012 the disparity had reached 0.5 million.
