NHS Long Term Plan - about

NHS England is working on a Long Term Plan for the future of the NHS and RCPCH are developing our recommendations for inclusion within the plan.

The NHS Long-Term Plan will include ambitions for the next 10 years and will outline how these ambitions will be met over the five years of the funding settlement. The plan is expected to be released in Autumn 2018.

Working groups have been established with key stakeholders to develop specific elements of the Long Term Plan. RCPCH President, Professor Russell Viner, is a member of the Healthy Childhood and Maternal Health working group, which is a part of the Life Course programme.
