Since the Act was introduced, NHS organisations have been working to deliver innovative care models which help to create long-lasting and positive change to current and future generations.

While NHS organisations are maximising their contributions to the seven well-being goals, they are also delivering against a backdrop of significant pressure on their Emergency Departments and primary and community care services to support people with COVID-19, and long-COVID, and treat people with complex needs or long-term conditions.

This increase in demand means the NHS needs to continue to adapt and focus on innovative models of care, working across the public sector, to ensure our communities are brought closer together, with early interventions and prevention at the heart of what we do.
