Quick guide to the NHS Long-Term Plan

The NHS has published its ‘Long Term Plan’ setting out its strategic approach and priorities for the next ten years. The plan outlines how the NHS plans to become ‘fit for the future’, modernising services and getting the best value for money for patients.

The approach can be characterised along three broad themes: increased integration of services; a focus on prevention; and an awareness of the social, cultural and economic factors that affect health outcomes – so-called ‘wider determinants of health’.
