100th Birthday for DHSC, Launch of NHSX and NHS Implementation Framework

100th Birthday for DHSC, Launch of NHSX and NHS Implementation Framework

1st July 2019

Good afternoon,

A very busy time for health policy as today is the 100th birthday of the Department of Health and Social Care, the official launch of NHSXPrimary Care Networks (and kick-off of Integrated Care Week) and the week when the NHS Assembly shall meet for their second meeting and the Health and Social Care Committee will publish its report on Drugs Policy: Medicinal Cannabis (Wed 3/7). Yesterday was the launch of a new UK Longevity Council of specialists chaired by Andy Brigs and  co-chair Matt Hancock. And last week Thursday, in case you missed it, the NHS published the implementation framework laying out how the NHS Long Term Plan shall be delivered. Earlier today, Health Secretary Matt Hancock and Baroness Blackwood both gave statements in the House of Commons and the Lords respectively on the Implementation of the NHS Long Term Plan - worth reading the debates.
