As medicine advances, health needs change and society develops, the NHS has to continually move forward so that in 10 years time we have a service fit for the future.
The NHS Long Term Plan is drawn up by frontline staff, patients groups, and national experts to be ambitious but realistic.
The NHS is one of Britain’s greatest achievements and for 70 years its dedicated staff has been there for us.
A lot has changed since it was created in 1948, and today the NHS is responding to changes in society that were never expected, let alone planned for.
The Government has announced additional funding for the NHS and this means we can plan to make the NHS fit for the future for patients, their families and our staff.
The NHS Long Term Plan will make sure the NHS has a bright future ahead of it. We know that families work hard to pay their taxes and that’s why we will make sure every penny is invested on the things that that matter most, from providing high quality lifesaving treatment and care for our patients and their families, to reducing pressure on our hard working NHS staff and investing in exciting new technologies.

Here are some national statistics which ought to alarm the patient community…
A survey recently revealed that 10% of patients take up 50% of all GP appointments, and most of those patients are not unwell - they are just unhealthy!
Diabetes costs over 10% of the NHS budget!
Less than half the people eligible for the free NHS Health Check for the over 40s have taken it up!
These are just three of the many reasons why your PPG will continue to promote good health and well being through self-care during 2019.
