My Rt. hon. Friend the Prime Minister announced, in her evidence to the Liaison Committee on 27 March, her intention to come forward with a long-term plan for the National Health Service, supported by a multi-year financial settlement to deliver that plan. The Government will bring forward a long-term plan this year, in advance of the Spending Review. The Government will work with NHS leaders, clinicians and experts to develop this long-term plan, to ensure that the NHS can cope with the serious demand and cost pressures it faces in the future.

No decision has yet been taken on the share of funds to be allocated to general practice under the multi-year financial settlement.
