What is the Long Term Plan?
The Long Term Plan sets out what the NHS wants to do better. This includes:
- Helping people live healthier lives;
- Investing more in technology and community services;
- Getting better at looking after people with cancer, mental health, dementia, lung and heart diseases and learning disabilities, such as autism; and,
- Improving the support people need to age well and to have a strong start in life.
