New work for NHS Future Forum

The Government has asked the NHS Future Forum to continue a new phase of conversations with patients, service users and professionals following its listening exercise on the proposals to modernise the NHS.

The NHS Future Forum, a group of health experts led by GP Professor Steve Field, will provide independent advice on four themes:

  • information: how to make information improve health, care and wellbeing
  • education and training: how to develop the healthcare workforce to deliver world-class healthcare
  • integrated care: how to ensure the Government?s modernisation programme leads to better integration of services around people?s needs
  • the public?s health: how to ensure the public?s health remains at the heart of the NHS.

To help the NHS Future Forum with its work, on 18 August the Department of Health published the summary of responses on the education and training and information consultations launched last year.
