This NHS White Paper sets out the Coalition Government's long-term vision for the future of the NHS. The vision is built on the core values and principles of the NHS - a comprehensive service, available to all, free at the point of use, based on need, not ability to pay. Health spending is to increase in real terms in each year of this Parliament. Patients will be put at the heart of the NHS, through an information revolution and greater choice and control. Shared decision-making will become the norm (no decision about me without me). Patients will have access to the information they want, to make choices about their care. They will have choice of any provider, choice of consultant-led team, choice of GP practice and choice of treatment.The NHS will focus on continuously improving those things that really matter to patients - the outcome of their healthcare; and will empower and liberate clinicians to innovate, with the freedom to focus on improving healthcare services.
