The NHS long service plan


A lot has changed since the NHS was created in 1948, and today the NHS is responding to changes in society that were never expected, let alone planned for.

The Government has announced additional funding for the NHS and this means a plan can be made to make the NHS fit for the future for patients, their families and our staff.

The NHS Long Term Plan will make sure the NHS has a bright future ahead of it. We know that families work hard to pay their taxes and that’s why it is important to make sure every penny is invested on the things that that matter most, from providing high-quality lifesaving treatment and care for our patients and their families, to reducing pressure on hard working NHS staff and investing in exciting new technologies.
