NHS 10 year plan

NHS 10 year plan

The unspecified technologies will be introduced as part of Prime Minister Theresa May's NHS Long Term Plan.

The spending plan was announced during the summer when £20bn was promised to the service.

The plan also aims to provide genetic testing for a quarter of people with dangerously high inherited cholesterol, reaching around 30,000 people.

- Pilot schemes will see "smart" inhalers given to respiratory patients to monitor their condition.

Better use of community pharmacists, better access to physiotherapists, and improving the availability of fast and appropriate care to help communities keep people out of hospital altogether.

The NHS has revealed its long-term plan, setting out how it hopes to improve health care across England in the next five to 10 years.

The plan continues the recent NHS trend of focusing on prevention and early detection, by detailing that the biggest cash injections will go to Global Positioning System, mental health and community care, increasing funding for primary and community care by at least £4.5 billion and aiming to curb the reliance on hospitals. The agency is also implementing new digital techniques that will help efficient spending of the fund. Challenges Ahead An analysis by The King's Fund, an independent charity, noted that while funding has increased, the NHS needs to deal with hard decisions on how healthcare is delivered.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock admitted the NHS was short-staffed, but said that work was being done to solve the problem.

Stevens told BBC Radio 4 there had been a 25 per cent increase in medical school places and five new medical schools in order to alleviate immediate concerns over recruitment, adding: "We want to see a big expansion in the number of nurses in training and undergraduate programmes".

Former 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio named Broncos head coach
But whether it can result in the equal of what the Bears built under Fangio and John Fox is anything but a given. Defensive lineman Akiem Hicks echoed those thoughts.


Investment in mental health services will rise to at least £2.3 billion a year by 2023/24 - a move which has been praised by mental health charity Mind. The NHS said that their intention to identify people with irregular heartbeat and blood pressure issues and offer them timely treatment would prevent formation of risky blood clots in the future that are precursors for heart and brain strokes.

We will improve how the NHS cares for children and young people with learning disabilities and autism by ending inappropriate hospitalisation, reducing over-medicalisation, and providing quality care in the community.

BMA board of science chair Professor Dame Parveen Kumar welcomed the plan but argued that more needs to be done, including bringing in minimum unit pricing.

The sophistication of commodity technology services, the plethora of advances in health technology, the track-record of reliable delivery which we have quietly laid down over recent years, and the passion and commitment of this Secretary of State to transforming these capabilities combine to make this a time of enormous opportunity and potential.

Chris Hopson, chief executive of NHS Providers, which represents hospital and ambulance trusts, said: The funding settlement - while welcome - does little more than cover rising costs and demand.

"If the NHS is to better meet the needs of patients and the public in these important areas of mental illness, cancer and long-term conditions, it must recognise the value of the highly skilled and qualified nursing workforce and the harsh realities on the NHS frontline".

The government must go further than what is outlined in the long-term plan and commit to population-wide measures, such as a minimum unit price for alcohol, restricting sugar levels in food, and greater restrictions on junk food marketing, if we are to achieve the necessary improvements to the health of the public.

The 10-year plan sets out how the £20.5bn annual budget will be spent, and the government promised it would focus on benefiting patients while helping relieve pressure on already strained hospitals.
