NHS long term plan

In 2020, the NHS set out its priorities for the next 10 years in its long term plan.
Our NHS and local councils are working together to create a local version of this plan, along with a health and wellbeing strategy, to:

  • give people the best start in life
  • can live the life they want
  • be supported in their choices when they need help

This will focus on improving people’s physical and mental health, and support them to stay well through every stage of their lives. Read about the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly long term plan.


NHS Kernow commissioned Healthwatch Cornwall and Volunteer Cornwall to undertake some specific engagement with seldom-heard groups of people to develop our long term plan. We decided to focus on young people leaving care, and Gypsy and travellers. 2 groups which have very specific health and care needs.

Volunteer Cornwall supported CareFree and TravellerSpace to undertake the engagement by providing:

  • an outline of the engagement theme
  • suggestions of how the engagement activities could take place

Each community was given the autonomy to utilise the best approach to collect feedback, based on their knowledge and experience of working with young care leavers and Gypsy and travellers.

Healthwatch Cornwall was asked to oversee and report on this engagement. Read Healthwatch Cornwall’s long term plan and engagement report (PDF, 242 KB).
