The Everyone Counts: Planning for Patients 2014/15 to 2018/19 document presents NHS England’s guidance for achieving service transformation, integrated care and more convenient services, amidst financial challenges. It explains how commissioners can work with providers and local government to develop five-year plans. Planning tools are provided with this framework aimed at achieving better outcomes for patients.
“People’s need for services will continue to grow faster than funding, meaning that we have to innovate and transform the way we deliver high quality services, within the resources available, to ensure that patients, and their needs, are always put first”.
