The King's Fund response to the NHS long-term plan

This is an ambitious plan that includes a number of commitments which – if delivered – will improve the lives of many people. NHS leaders should be applauded for focusing on improving services outside hospitals and moving towards more joined-up, preventative and personalised care for patients. But some significant pieces of the jigsaw are still missing, and there should be no illusions about the scale of the challenge ahead.
