As the NHS celebrates its milestone 70th birthday, we want to reflect on the progress we have made on some of NHS England’s priority areas: progress on how care is delivered and how it will continue to improve in the future.

- June: Learning disabilities
- July: Innovation and digital
- August: Cancer
- September: Personalised care and volunteering
- October: Specialised commissioning
- November: Urgent and emergency care
