NHS England have published their Five Year Forward View today setting out a vision for the future of the NHS. It has been developed by partner organisations which deliver and oversee health and care services in England together with patient groups, clinicians and independent experts to create a view of how the health service needs to change over the next five years if it is to close the gaps in the health of the population, quality of care and funding. The Five Year Forward View outlines why change is needed, what the change might look like and how it can be delivered. It calls on NHS leaders and staff, patients and the public to all play their part and defines the framework for further detailed planning about how the NHS needs to evolve over the next five years.
