The NHS is one of Britain’s greatest achievements and for 70 years its dedicated staff has been there for us.
A lot has changed since it was created in 1948, and today the NHS is responding to changes in society that were never expected, let alone planned for.
The Government has announced additional funding for the NHS and this means we can plan to make the NHS fit for the future for patients, their families and our staff.
The NHS Long Term Plan will make sure the NHS has a bright future ahead of it. We know that families work hard to pay their taxes and that’s why we will make sure every penny is invested on the things that matter most, from providing high quality lifesaving treatment and care for our patients and their families, to reducing pressure on our hard working NHS staff and investing in exciting new technologies.
Read the brief summary to find out what the NHS Long Term Plan will deliver for patients and an overview of the key things you can expect to see and hear about as local NHS organisations work with their partners to turn the ambitions in the plan into improvements in services across the country.
