NHS Future Forum

The Government has asked the NHS Future Forum to continue its conversations with patients, service users and professionals to provide independent advice on four important themes:

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

The NHS Future Forum will be speaking to people at events and on this website. Please join in the conversations and let us have your views on these issues.
