The National Debate
Although we have some unique challenges in Lincolnshire, we face the same issues as other areas of the country: how do we reduce pressure on our hospitals, how do we integrate health and care, how do we encourage people to take responsibility for their own health and care, how can we improve diagnoses and survival rates and how do we do all this within our current budget? The NHS has set out a vision for how our health system needs to change to respond to some of these challenges.
This vision is set out in the NHS 5 year forward view. Check out this video which shows some of the challenges we are facing.
