What will save our NHS? Not the Mirror! Not useless LibDem or any other politicians! Not some useless Clinical Commissioning Groups! Not illegal health tourists! Just the NHS Long Term Plan
that is drawn up by frontline staff, patients groups, and national experts to be ambitious but realistic. The NHS Assembly brings together a range of individuals from across the health and care sectors at regular intervals to advise the joint boards of NHS England and NHS Improvement on delivery of the NHS Long Term Plan (LTP).
The Assembly membership brings broad stakeholder insight and frontline experience to discussions, serving as a “guiding coalition” on implementation of the improvements outlined in the plan.
Looks good to me!
