Alcohol care teams to be introduced under NHS Long Term Plan

She said: 'As well as the implementation of these services in the NHS, the Government needs to introduce broader measures, such a minimum unit pricing for beer, wines and spirits, to achieve a largescale improvement in the population's health.

"How does the Government expect to deliver everything promised in the plan if there are no staff to deliver the services?" The teams will work with other local community services to provide medical help and support through counselling.

The highly anticipated plan for the long-term future of the NHS has been published, but industry experts have criticised a delay in the details around how a new workforce strategy will support its delivery.

There are a variety of issues responsible for this which AAP is created to circumvent; there may not exist the finances necessary to initially invest in the product, it might be hard to get clinicians to change to a new treatment in place of one they may have been using for many years; or there may exist regional differences in the speed with which some new treatments are made available.

Tracy Dowling, chief executive of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust, said she was pleased the 10 year plan focuses on several key areas including extra funding for community services and young people's mental health, and also includes commitments to recruiting more staff and implementing the use of technology to improve patient care.

Stevens has previously sought to reassure ministers that revisiting the 2012 act should not necessitate a further shake-up of how the NHS is organised and that well-judged changes would suffice. As well as the toll on wellbeing, this has a detrimental impact on recruitment and retention and, unless this is addressed, we risk a workforce plan without the doctors in the future to deliver it.

More than three million people will benefit from improved stroke, respiratory and cardiac services over the next decade.

The plan has been welcomed by campaigners, but experts warned that implementing it would be hard.

Everyone will receive more personalised care, there will be a bigger focus on social prescribing and empowering people to take greater control and responsibility over their own health through predictive prevention, and personal health budgets. We are especially pleased to see more support for young people's mental health where additional resources for core services and those that support the transition to adult services are much needed.

The NHS will tackle unacceptable health inequalities by targeting support towards the most vulnerable in areas of high deprivation.

It is part of the aim to make digital services a mainstream part of the health service.

"This will help relieve pressure on the NHS while providing the basis to transform care with world-class treatments". The plan suggests a new model which will see continued support offered to people until they are 25.

It will continue to be shaped and refined by staff and patients through an implementation plan framework in the spring, with events and activities across the country to help people understand what it means for them and their local NHS services.

Up to 500,000 more lives will be saved in the next decade by improving treatment for major killers including cancer and heart-disease, the NHS will say as its long-term plan is revealed today. Funded by taxpayers, designed by doctors, delivered by this government.

"There is an urgent need to act on this, and we look forward to working with NHS England to ensure better IT connectivity between optical practices and other parts of the NHS", Ms Alderman concluded.

And I am proud to commend this statement to the House.
