Our policy priorities

Policy entry in dictionary

In the short term, our immediate goal will be to ensure that the NHS Ten-Year Plan is developed in collaboration with community providers and that community services, in their broadest sense, sit at the heart of the plan.

In the long term, we will address key policy issues that affect the delivery of high-quality community services and enable the development of an infrastructure that enables this, with a focus on:

  • the development of community-based data and metrics
  • sufficient funding and investment in community services to support the ambitions set out in the Five Year Forward View on moving care out of the acute sector
  • full involvement of community services at the heart of the development of the future system architecture, including the establishment of sustainability and transformation partnerships and accountable care models
  • engagement and partnerships with primary care to support the delivery of future care models
