The number of years people in Scotland can expect to live in good health has fallen again, according to new figures.

The Healthy Life Expectancy 2018 – 2020 report for 2018 to 2022 shows that people in deprived communities have the fewest healthy years in life.

On average, they spend a third of their lives in poor health – 24 more years than those in the least deprived areas.

Across Scotland, healthy life expectancy was 60.9 years for males and 61.8 years for females.

These figures have dropped each year from 2018 to 2022 for females and for the past three years for males.
