There are no plans to report on the progress on the National Service Framework for Long Term Conditions (LTCs), published under the previous administration in 2005.

As you may be aware, since 1 April 2013, NHS England has been responsible for securing high quality outcomes for people with people with LTCs. In our mandate to the National Health Service, we set out ambitions to improve the care and support of patients with long term illnesses, helping them to live healthily and independently, with much better control over the care they receive. In response, NHS England set out a range of actions designed to deliver this, central to which was implementation of the House of Care model, which is designed to support the delivery of person-centred, coordinated care. The House of Care enables individuals to make informed decisions about their treatment and empowers them to self-manage their LTCs in partnership with health and care professionals.
