In response, the head of policy at NHS Providers, Amber Jabbal said:

“The NHS ten-year plan and long-term funding settlement has the potential to be a ‘reset’ moment for the NHS – if we seize this opportunity.

“The engagement process set out today by NHS England and NHS Improvement is an important first step towards a credible plan to be published in November.

“We know that there will be tough choices ahead about the priorities for this ambitious plan. Ultimately, the plan must place patients and staff at its heart. It also needs to be deliverable within the funding available. That will only be the case if the NHS front line is able to contribute to this process in a meaningful way.

“We welcome the commitment to engage patients groups and wider stakeholders in the development of the plan. We must have buy-in from the wider health and care sector if we are to achieve integrated care and meet the needs of patients in the future.”
