This is the report of a ten-month inquiry into progress on the delivery of the goals set out in NHS England’s Five Year Forward View (FYFV) on the future of the NHS in England, published in October 2014.
The report makes 15 recommendations, with an emphasis on the issues of information, signposting and behaviour change.
The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Primary Care and Public Health concluded that a National Strategy for self care has a vital role to play in driving more appropriate use of NHS resources. Reflecting on evidence gathered during the course of their inquiry, the cross-party group of MPs said that the NHS had so far failed to respond to the obvious opportunities to better manage rising demand against diminishing resource that a National Strategy for self care would deliver.
