The NHS Plan is the 10-year blueprint for investment and NHS, the public, the staff who deliver the services and the managers who plan the future. No part of the NHS is immune from the impact of the plan. This tool kit is a comprehensive guide to the Plan. It assesses its impact and consequences, and discusses the practicalities of implementation and the challenges and opportunities it offers. Key areas in the Plan are analysed including cancer, coronary heart disease, mental health services, waiting lists and revalidation.
