The NHS long term plan sets out an ambitious vision of improved care for patients. But is it job done?

Read the key points

In this briefing we analyse the challenges now facing health and social care and look at the implications of the plan for activity levels and workforce in the NHS in England. We set out funding scenarios for areas of health spending outside NHS England’s budget (including NHS workforce, capital investment, the prevention agenda and adult social care) and examine the potential impact on wider public spending.

The findings of the analysis are supported by a separate survey of NHS front-line leaders carried out by NHS Confederation.
