On the day briefing: The NHS long term plan

The NHS long term plan has been published, following last June’s announcement of a £20.5bn annual real terms uplift for the NHS by 2023/24. The Plan sets out ambitions for ensuring the NHS is fit for the future and covers a ten year window. A consultation and engagement period will now begin on the Plan, running until the summer.

This briefing summarises key content included in each chapter of the Plan: a new service model, action on prevention and health inequalities, progress on care quality and outcomes, the NHS workforce, digitally-enabled care, value for money and the next steps in implementing the plan. It also includes NHS Providers’ view and press statement.
