NHS Mandate 2017/18 and NHS Delivery Plan

22 May 2017

The NHS Mandate for 2017/18 has better inclusion of carers as well as keeping the same provision as 2016/17. Whilst Carers UK is please with more mainstreaming of carers’ issues in the document, we also believe that there is a missed opportunity to ensure that carers are not more firmly embedded into the requirements for a more modern NHS. When the new Government forms in June, we want the process for 20118/19 for the NHS to look at more robust and systematic ways of identifying and supporting carers.

The NHS Delivery Plan – which looks at the remaining three years until 2020 of the Five Year Forward View contains more detail about the work going forward that will support carers that is very welcome. This includes more detail about GPs identifying carers, and new work around the Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs).
