Developing the long term plan for the NHS

The NHS is now working on a plan setting out its ambitions for improvement over the next decade, and it plans to meet them over the five years of the funding settlement. As part of that process it is vital that all those who rely on and work in or alongside the NHS have the opportunity to contribute their ideas, experiences and insights.

This discussion guide (also available in an easy read versionis intended to help stimulate those ideas and understand views across three key themes – life stage, clinical priorities and enablers of improvement – each covers a number of different areas which we believe have the greatest potential to deliver improvements to the way the NHS provides care. In each section we provide an overview of some of the key challenges and a series of questions that we would encourage you to answer to provide us a consistent way of understanding peoples’ feedback. The online feedback form (accessed below) follows this same format.

You may choose to provide responses for every topic, or just the ones that are important to you or the group you represent. Where possible, organisations are encouraged to collate responses from their members into a single submission.

Please ensure that you fully complete the first page of the survey.

You can take part and complete the feedback form here.
