The NHS long-term plan

NHS England, January 2019

The NHS Long Term Plan is a new plan for the NHS to improve the quality of patient care and health outcomes. It sets out how the £20.5 billion budget settlement for the NHS, announced by the Prime Minister in summer 2018, will be spent over the next 5 years. The plan focuses on improving services outside hospitals and moving towards more joined-up, preventive and personalised care for patients by improving out-of-hospital care, supporting primary medical and community health services, improving maternity safety and making digital health services a mainstream part of the NHS.
