Corporate plan 2012-13

The Department of Health’s Corporate plan sets out our priorities for the year ahead. The Department’s enduring purpose is to achieve better health, better care, better value: working to help people live better for longer.

Now that the Health and Social Care Bill has become law, the Department has a firm platform on which to build clarity about the future direction of the health and social care system as a whole.

The plan groups the Department’s activity into six priority areas:

  • Better health; Better care; Better value relate directly to DH’s enduring purpose and capture the key business priorities for the Department for this year to April 2013
  • Successful change, delivering the transition to the new system – picks up the work the DH does and its accountability for making this happen
  • Working with our partners – builds on what the DH does now and recognises that in the new system the Department will be working differently
  • Transforming the DH itself – is about the DH’s journey to develop its capability.

The plan is also built around how the Department will support the Secretary of State to deliver his five strategic objectives:

  • a patient-led NHS
  • delivering better health outcomes
  • a more autonomous and accountable NHS
  • improved public health
  • reforming long-term and social care.
