The NHS is one of our nation’s greatest achievements, and for 70 years dedicated NHS staff have been there for us.
But more people are living longer, many with complex health conditions, so the NHS needs to plan so it can work more smartly and effectively, deliver excellent care and attract and retain the best staff.
Last summer the Prime Minister committed an extra £20.5 billion a year going into the NHS by 2023/4.
That’s why the NHS has written a Long Term Plan, developed in partnership with those who know the NHS best - frontline health and care staff, patients and their families – who will continue to shape how it will be implemented across the country.
The Plan shows how we will use the extra money to deliver the best results for patients, taxpayers and staff.
