The number of people living with incurable long-term conditions is set to rise by three million people in just over a decade, experts have warned.
Former GP turned MP Sarah Wollaston said said the NHS must find another £4 billion each year "just to be keeping pace" with the expected rise to a total of 18 million people with such health issues by 2025.
"We feel that there needs to be a much greater sense of urgency as to how we're going to deal with that, not only in financial terms but the impact on people," said the MP, who chairs the influential Health Select Committee.
