In 2023/24 the NHS has three key tasks. The immediate priority is to recover our core services and productivity. Second, as we recover, we need to make progress in delivering the key ambitions in the NHS Long Term Plan. Third, we need to continue transforming the NHS for the future.
This business plan sets out NHS England’s work in leading and supporting the NHS to respond to these three key tasks, as well as a fourth task in creating a new organisation following the legal merger of NHS England with NHS Digital on 1 February 2023, and Health Education England on 1 April 2023.
