The Department prioritises responding to the long-term strategic challenges facing health and social care, alongside responding to current events. For example, the recently published NHS England Long Term Workforce Plan sets out how we will deliver a National Health Service workforce that meets the needs of the population over the next 15 years. The Department is also producing a Major Conditions Strategy, for which the Department published an initial report in August.
