NHS Long Term Plan publication

NHS Long Term Plan publication

7th January 2019

Before you read any further - here you can watch Simon Stevens, Chief Executive of NHS England summarise the NHS Long Term Plan published earlier today by the Prime Minister and Simon Stevens. 

Via this link you can also download the full document and summary of the NHS Long Term Plan.

For a quick overview of the highlights, you can read the HSJ's excellent full coverage and more detailed articles per topic. And if in need of a reminder of previous NHS Plans published, I recommend reading HSJ Andy Cowper's report on 'a brief history of NHS plans'. 

Also today was Parliament's return from Christmas recess and will the Secretary of State for Health, Matt Hancock, make a Ministerial statement in the House of Commons on the NHS Long Term Plan. You can watch his statement live here or if you missed it, you can read back the transcript on Hansard.

For the remainder of the week, I would like to draw your interest to the Public Accounts Select Committee Oral Evidence Session on Clinical Commissioning Groups taking place Wednesday 9 January at 2:30 pm. Amongst those giving evidence are Sir Chris Wormald, Permanent Secretary DHSC, Simon Stevens, Chief Executive NHS England, and Matthew Swindells, National Director Operations and Information, NHS England.

I wish you all a good read of the NHS Long Term Plan and a lovely week,

Best wishes,
