The NHS in England at 75 (NHS@75)

Ahead of the NHS’s 75th birthday, the NHS Assembly has developed an independent report: The NHS in England at 75: priorities for the future. This will help the NHS, nationally and locally, respond to long term opportunities and challenges. 

The Assembly found a growing consensus that the NHS should now focus on three key areas for long term development: better preventing ill health, personalising care and delivering more co-ordinated care closer to home.

The report draws on the feedback of thousands of people who contributed to a rapid process of engagement (NHS@75 engagement), and the Assembly’s huge breadth of experience. 

The Assembly will continue to draw on the insights gained from the NHS@75 engagement to explore the key developments outlined in more detail. The findings will help inform the work of NHS England to develop strategies for the years ahead in partnership with Integrated Care Systems.
