    Contribute to the NHS long term plan

    With the recent Government announcement of additional funding the NHS is now working on a plan setting out its ambitions for improvement over the next decade, and plans to meet them over the five years of the funding settlement.  The information below provides details of how PIF members can contribute to the development of the plan.

    PIF will be submitting comments on why we believe the provision of high-quality, accessible health information should be a key consideration within the plan.

    Helping develop the plan

    As part of that process it is vital that all those who rely on and work in or alongside the NHS have the opportunity to contribute their ideas, experiences and insights.

    This discussion guide (also available in an easy read version) is intended to help stimulate those ideas and understand views across three key themes – life stage, clinical priorities and enablers of improvement – each covers a number of different areas which we believe have the greatest potential to deliver improvements to the way the NHS provides care. In each section an overview has been provided of some of the key challenges and a series of questions to answer to provide a consistent way of understanding peoples’ feedback. The online feedback form (accessed below) follows this same format.

    You may choose to provide responses for every topic, or just the ones that are important to you or the group you represent. Where possible, organisations should collate responses from their members into a single submission.

    If you have any questions you can contact england.ltp@nhs.net

    Responses can be submitted via the web portal here:

    The deadline for submissions is 30th September 2018.
