An ambitious plan to make our health and social care system fit for the 21st century has been unveiled

The plan sets out a range of priorities, including a focus on keeping people healthy in the first place, and a new model of care involving a team of professionals based around GP surgeries.

The proposals set out in the report, Delivering Together, include:

  • A short-term plan to tackle waiting lists to be drawn up by January
  • By spring, every GP practice will have a named district nurse, health visitor and social worker
  • By December 2016, 54 pharmacists should be in place in GP practices. This roll-out will be completed by March 2021
  • Number of GP training places will increase to 111 - there will be 12 additional places next year and 14 the following
  • More advanced nurse practitioners
  • Further support for looked-after children will be in place by late 2017
