New NHS Long Term plan – Summary for Maternal and Neonatal Care
This paper distils the key points of the NHS Long Term Plan, launched on January 7th 2019, which can be downloaded, along with supporting papers from longtermplan.nhs.uk. We have aimed in this short paper to take the key points and reproduce them here without comment and “as is” within the Long Term Plan. This is designed for clinicians, the public and anyone interested in what the plan is for maternity services, but may not have time to go through all 120 pages of the plan.
Wider reading of the whole document might give a more complete context but as a quick and easy reference I hope this is helpful. Responsibility for omissions and errors are mine, responsibility for delivery of the plan, well that is one for Matt Hancock.
