What are the changes coming?
In a nutshell, the NHS Long Term Plan, a ten-year plan created by NHS England, sets out a vision to make sure that health services are fit for purpose in the future. With growing pressure on the NHS – an ageing population, more people living with long-term conditions, and lifestyle choices affecting people’s health – changes are needed to make sure everybody gets the support they need.
A significant part of the plan is around preventative action against illness and disease, so switching to a healthier lifestyle could prevent some health issues occurring. The plan also promises that more support will be available for people with mental health conditions; heart and lung diseases; long-term conditions, such as diabetes and arthritis; learning disabilities; autism; and dementia.
There will be a drive to increase staff numbers to support this. Technology will be used to give medical professionals better access to information and the ability to share it with other service providers.
Now our local NHS needs to hear from you about what those changes should look like in your community within Enfield.
