The NHS Long Term Plan
In January 2019, NHS England published its Long Term Plan. It sets out the NHS’ ambitions for improvement over the next decade. Patients and their families, NHS staff, the public and a wide range of organisations were involved in developing the plan. There are 13 priority areas of work ranging from mental health to recruiting more staff to work in the NHS.
Across north east London we have been working to develop a local response to the Long Term Plan, which sets out how we will work together to respond to our known challenges and deliver improvements to health and care services. The System Operating Plan, published in April 2019, forms the first year of this plan. The final draft of our ‘local LTP’, also known as our strategy delivery plan, was submitted to NHS England/Improvement in November 2019. It will be discussed at health and wellbeing boards and overview and scrutiny meetings in early 2020, before a final version is made available on this website.
Our local systems within the north east London system (City and Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest, Barking and Dagenham, and Havering and Redbridge) have been working on their local strategy delivery plans, which summarise how at a local level they will meet the health and wellbeing needs of local people by delivering the Long Term Plan. City and Hackney's plan is available to download.
