NHS Long Term Plan

What is the future of the NHS in England? This plan will include ambitions for the next 10 years and how these ambitions will be met over the five years of the funding settlement. Here's what the College is doing.
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 one of these.
Promoting children and young people's mental health is a priority area for us. We know that half of all mental health problems have been established by the age of 14 and 75% by age 24 years.
Our top priorities include the children's health workforce, early intervention and prevention and services to the mental wellbeing of families in the military.
