NHS70: spotlight on our priorities

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.

This ‘Spotlight Series’ will showcase one area each month; looking at progress, patient and clinician experiences; and cast an eye to the future of the NHS.

The Spotlight Series will cover the following topics over the coming months:

  • March: Genomics
  • April: Primary care and diabetes
  • May: Mental health
  • June: Learning disabilities
  • July: Innovation and digital
  • August: Cancer
  • September: Personalised care and volunteering
  • October: Specialised commissioning
  • November: Urgent and emergency care
