We have come together to identify five key themes that the health and social care system must embrace to ensure patients have access to high quality, compassionate and sustainable care.
Under each of these themes we have detailed the outcomes we want to see for patients, and set out the most important priorities for action to achieve these outcomes.
Linked to these outcomes, we have selected the service improvements that, if met, will have a major impact on the quality and cost-effectiveness of care. These are by no means the only service changes that are needed to achieve the outcomes we would like to see, but we believe they are the most urgent and important. These are the things we can, and must, get on and do.
