MHP Communications NHS Leaders Poll June 2019

Survey of NHS Leaders in England on their views around the NHS Long-Term Plan.

  • The majority of NHS Leaders say the implementation of the NHS Long-Term Plan and its focus on Integrated Care Systems (ICS) will result in significant progress towards achieving the health priorities of their local area (66% say this).
  • The main barrier to its success is viewed to be institutional challenges within the NHS such as financial pressures and staff shortages (33% say this), as opposed to laws such as the Health and Social Care Act (only 10% say this).
  • Investing in and training the healthcare workforce is seen as the most urgent priority overall for their organisation (62% rank in top 3) followed by increasing integration with other NHS organisations, local councils or other organisations (60% rank in top 3).
