As medicine advances, health needs change and society develops, so the NHS has to continually move forward so that in 10 years’ time we have a service fit for the future. The NHS Long Term Plan sets out the priorities and ambitions for the years ahead to make sure the NHS continues to provide high quality care across the country.
There are lots of ways to find out what the plan includes:
Local NHS organisations have been asked to work together as part of health and care systems to develop their own plans by autumn 2019 which will set out what the national plan will mean on a local level.
We want the local plans to be co-produced with as many different people as possible to make sure they truly reflect the needs of our population.
To do this, over the course of this year, we will be going out to speak and listen to people across the local area and encouraging many others to give their feedback. Click here for more information about our upcoming engagement events - we hope to see you there!
