Our work

Gesticulating with pen

Our work aims to address the key policy issues that affect the delivery of high-quality community services and enable the development of of an infrastructure that supports this.

Over the past few months we have:

  • written to NHS England and NHS Improvement, calling for community services to be front and centre of the ten-year plan
  • issued a statement in response to Simon Stevens' early priorities for the ten-year plan
  • called for radical action to ensure primary care, social care and community services are adequately funded and integrated
  • warned that rash cuts in the community could undermine the long term NHS plan
  • called for safe staffing plans for community inpatient wards to be looked at “through a multi-disciplinary perspective
  • hosted a private dinner with Ian Dalton, chief executive of NHS Improvement and Matthew Swindells, NHS England’s national director of operations and information
  • helped to raise the profile of community services, in an op-ed introducing the network, written network chair Matthew Winn.
  • Responded to the NHS Long-term Plan's publication with a media statement
