The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges broadly welcomes the announcement by NHS England which sets out its priorities in the years ahead.
In the statement it is said that:
“While the document is disappointingly silent on funding, we do recognise that much can be done currently to improve care. But the changes and efficiencies that effective Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs) can and should bring alongside improving the use of technology will not by themselves be enough to sustain the system in the long term. Additional resources are going to be required.”
