NHS England Annual Report Published and New Constitution Updates
Published on 21st July 2015, NHS England's Annual Report 2014/15 provides a snapshot overview of its performance over the past year and outlines its strategic priorities for 2015/16.
The report discusses NHS England’s most significant achievements and includes a breakdown of its annual accounts for 2014/15.
The publication also points to the future by unveiling NHS England’s Five Year Forward View, to begin in 2015/16.
This section identifies key commissioning priorities requiring improvement in the year ahead, including cancer care, mental health, learning disabilities, obesity and diabetes prevention.
A mission-critical task, highlighted to take place over the next five years, will be a fundamental redesign of how services are provided.
This will blur the old boundaries between GP and hospital care, physical and mental health services, as well as health and social care.
This strategy aims to boost the NHS’ productivity and is a direct response to the pressures that it will face due to increasing patient demand, during a time when the nation’s finances are under strain.

The revised documents now reflect current policy and legislation.
