“ …average life expectancy has reached 79.6 years for men and 83.2 for women. In 2017, there were 1.35 million people aged 85 and over in England – nearly three times more than in 1971. …people can expect to live about 63 years in good health; that means men face about 16 years of ill health – a fifth of their life – and women more than 19 years – nearly a quarter of their life – in poor health”.
