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.
