The NHS has grown from a budget of less than £500m to £145bn in its 70 years.

The NHS is the world’s fifth-largest employer, behind the US department of defence (3.2m), Chinese People’s Liberation Army (2.3m), Walmart (2.3m), and McDonald's (1.9m).

There are 37 NHS trusts with more than 10% of their workforce from the EU. Top of the list is Royal Brompton and Harefield, and Oxford University Hospitals, with 19%.

Public satisfaction with the NHS in 2017 was 57% - quality of care, the attitude of staff, and the range of services were all praised, with concerns over long waiting times and a lack of funding.

Here Sky News breaks down the numbers and some of the stories behind them.
