The NHS Assembly brings together a range of individuals from across the health and care sectors at regular intervals to advise the board of NHS England on delivery of the NHS Long Term Plan (LTP).
The Assembly membership brings broad stakeholder insight and frontline experience to discussions, serving as a “guiding coalition” on implementation of the improvements outlined in the plan.
The Assembly is not itself responsible for LTP implementation and nor does it cut across the current statutory accountabilities of NHS England.
The NHS Assembly has developed an independent report: The NHS in England at 75: priorities for the future. Read more about NHS@75 and how this report will help the NHS, nationally and locally, respond to long term opportunities and challenges.
