Latest Pharmacy News: NHS Long Term Plan envisages 'essential role' for pharmacists

It's worth noting that in total, community health services, mental health and primary care costs the NHS around £27bn a year, so the allocation for mental health is just less than 10%. But the plan cannot escape the harsh reality that the NHS will still face tough decisions on what it can and cannot do. "We will therefore expand geographical coverage of NHS services for people with serious gambling problems, and work with partners to tackle the problem at source".

The NHS has throughout its history led the world.

From this year, NHS 111 will begin booking GP surgery appointments, NHS England said.

The prime minister announced that over the next five years the NHS budget would increase by £20.5 billion in real terms.

This will help address today's challenges. The plan aims to cut outpatient visits by 30 million a year, saving £1.1 billion in resources.

At the heart of this plan is the principle that prevention is better than cure.

The General Medical Council (GMC) suggested the United Kingdom should consider migrant workers in future workforce planning after a poll revealed many doctors were considering quitting the NHS or cutting their hours because they felt stressed or overburdened.

That means patients will have improved access to their Global Positioning System and greater flexibility about how they contact them.

On top of this, it claims that primary care networks will "attract and fund additional staff" - initially focusing on clinical pharmacists, link workers, physiotherapists and physician associates, before moving onto other staff such as community paramedics. The teams will work with other local community services to provide medical help and support through counselling. We went through it, so you don't have to.

Staff will receive better training and more help with career progression. Here, people will be signposted to support.

"Giving the substantial and growing pressures on the NHS, the announcement of the long-term plan represents an ambitious set of aims for the health service, but this must be underpinned by a strong set of deliverable actions".

It means patients receiving high-quality care closer to home.

New mums will have more support with improved maternity services, more support for both parents and carers in the early years of their child's life so we can give all young people the best possible start in life.

NHS England boss, Simon Stevens called the move a "practical, costed and phased route map" for the decade ahead.

The NHS will tackle unacceptable health inequalities by targeting support towards the most vulnerable in areas of high deprivation.

"In aiming for parity between physical and mental health services these plans demonstrate a clear commitment to mental health through increased spending and introducing access standards".

Meanwhile, all providers across acute, community and mental health "will be expected to advance to a core level of digitisation by 2024".

Mr Speaker, the Long Term Plan focuses on the most common causes of mortality, including cancer, heart disease, stroke and lung disease.

The current structure of mental health services often creates gaps for young people transitioning to adult mental health services when they turn 18. "For all those people who are severely affected by mental illness we now have the prospect of getting access to good quality treatment, quickly, near home for the first time", he said.

And we will upgrade urgent care so people can get the right care more quickly.

"The green paper and the NHS long term plan should have been developed in parallel".

Speaking alongside NHS England chief executive Simon Stevens at Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool, where 13 per cent of the hospital's doctors are from the European Union, the Prime Minister said the additional funding would "provide both the certainty and the long-term direction needed to transform patient care and secure the future of our NHS".

Newer technology with new priorities, fit for the future, so it is always there, in our hour of need.

And I am proud to commend this statement to the House.
