@Theresa_May: "The NHS is this Government's No.1 spending priority." #LongTermNHSPlanpic.twitter.com/tiRAH1LvJx
@theresa_may: "The National Health Service is not the property of any one party or government. "The clue is in the name – it belongs to the nation. "There for everyone. Free at the point of use." #LongTermNHSPlan
"And there has been encouraging progress: for example, over 7,000 additional women accessed the expanded specialist perinatal services last year. But we still have a long way to go."
"The Five Year Forward View for Mental Health set a number of priorities – including perinatal and children’s services, crisis care and psychological therapies – and backed them with additional funding."
"To transform how we look after our mental health, we will need to look beyond the role of the NHS so everyone plays their part – whether it is schools or the criminal justice system, private sector employers or social media companies."
@theresa_may on mental health: 'The long-term plan must also address an issue which is a personal priority for me: mental health & its place at the heart of our NHS. We all know someone that has been affected by mental health problems: a family member, a colleague, a friend'
@theresa_may: "My next priority for the ten-year plan is to create a renewed focus on the prevention of ill-health...we increasingly know what can be done to prevent these conditions before they develop – or how to ameliorate them when they first occur."
"More immediately we will act to increase the number of trained healthcare professionals in those areas of the NHS that are experiencing the greatest pressures."
"We will also need to create a more flexible workforce: with new routes into medicine & healthcare - building on the work to create new apprenticeships and the Nursing Associate Programme - and more diverse roles with the right skills to enable the holistic care we want to see."
