Rebuilding our NHS: why it's time to invest

The long-term plan for the NHS set out a vision for an NHS built around preventive and technologically enabled models of care.

This report from NHS Providers argues that there needs to be an appropriate capital settlement to support the ambitious vision of the plan. Delivery will require the transformation and upgrade of existing facilities, as well as enhanced digital capabilities and investment in diagnostic equipment. In recent years there has been a prolonged under-investment in facilities across the English NHS as a whole, which has left too many providers with inadequate buildings, failing equipment and an inability to adopt new technologies to improve care.
