The NHS Five Year Forward View was published in October 2014 and set out a new shared vision for the future of the NHS based around the new models of care.



The NHS Five Year Forward View has been developed by the partner organisations that deliver and oversee health and care services including Care Quality Commission, Public Health England and NHS Improvement (previously Monitor and National Trust Development Authority).

Patient groups, clinicians and independent experts have also provided their advice to create a collective view of how the health service needs to change over the next five years if it is to close the widening gaps in the health of the population, quality of care and the funding of services.


The easy read version of the NHS Five Year Forward View was created to help people with learning disabilities understand the information easily.
