The 2023/24 priorities and operational guidance outlines three key tasks for the NHS. 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.
NHS England’s business plan for 2023/24 sets out the organisation’s work in leading and supporting the NHS to respond to these three key tasks, including the actions to meet the objectives set out in the mandate from government. It also describes our fourth key task of completing the creation of our new organisation and continuing to improve how we work in line with our operating framework.
