NHS Assembly

The NHS Assembly will bring together a range of individuals from across the health and care sectors at regular intervals to advise the joint boards of NHS England and NHS Improvement on delivery of the NHS Long Term Plan (LTP).

The Assembly membership will bring broad stakeholder insight and frontline experience to discussions, serving as a “guiding coalition” on implementation of the improvements outlined in the plan.

The Assembly will have an agreed programme of work to allow for tier two engagement activity to be conducted in advance of meetings to help bring wider insight to the membership as appropriate. The Assembly is not itself responsible for LTP implementation and nor does it cut across the current statutory accountabilities of NHS England and NHS Improvement.
