NHS Assembly

The NHS Assembly brings together a range of individuals from across the health and care sectors at regular intervals to advise the joint boards of NHS England and NHS Improvement on delivery of the NHS Long Term Plan (LTP).

The Assembly membership brings broad stakeholder insight and frontline experience to discussions, serving as a “guiding coalition” on implementation of the improvements outlined in the plan.

The Assembly is not itself responsible for LTP implementation and nor does it cut across the current statutory accountabilities of NHS England and NHS Improvement.
