Ambitious Plans are Welcome- But Service Improvements are Going to Stumble

The RCN has welcomed a publication that details the long-term plan of the NHS. They have stated that they plan to share it so that they can help the leading services to gain a better understanding of what the NHS stands for. The plan is going to show the goal for the NHS over the next 10 years. They are also going to detail how they are going to spend money and even how this is going to be prioritised as well. The annual budget is going to be increased by over £20 billion and this is expected to come into place by the year 2023. This does also include a focus on the prevention and even the early detection of mental health. Community care is also going to play a huge part in this, and that is especially the case if you work as part of a nurse agency or even in a nurse recruitment agency.

They have also claimed that they are going to save half a million lives. This is going to be done via practical action on conditions that are considered to be major killers. This can include stroke and even cancer. The plans that they have for securing the staff that are required however are somewhat vague. They have pledges of another workforce implementation but the details regarding this are said to be released in the year 2019.

This does recognise to some extent the incredible strain that a lot of nurses are under. It also says that this is an unsustainable number as well. It does however suggest that there are some concerning issues for the increasing number of nurse graduates. Of course, only time will tell whether or not this is going to be an issue for the future.
