This means improving access to high-quality care for our all mental health needs, increasing the size and skills of the workforce, integrating services, improving outcomes and involving patients.

When Prime Minister Theresa May promised an extra £20bn for NHS England by 2023, she set a condition - the health service had to draw up a long-term plan setting out how it would spend it.

Alan White, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Health, Care and Wellbeing, said it was important that the new long-term plan focused on early intervention and prevention - with a guarantee for the first time in the 70 years of the NHS that "investment in primary, community and mental health care will grow faster than the growing overall NHS budget".

It will be supported by further investment in the nhs.uk platform, along with the creation of a new framework for digital suppliers to primary care, a review - which will take in the GP payment formula - of digital first practices to ensure they are safe and benefit the NHS, and a review of GP regulation and terms and conditions.

Robert Colvile, director of the Centre for Policy Studies thinktank, said the priorities were "broadly correct" but that the NHS needed to focus on improving levels of productivity for the money to have a real effect.

NHS England chief Simon Stevens said the plan also "tackles head on" the pressures faced by health staff.

"We will therefore expand geographical coverage of NHS services for people with serious gambling problems, and work with partners to tackle the problem at source".

This comes after NHS England announced recently that national funding for children's hospices is to rise by as much as £25m a year.

Knifeman stabs 20 children in attack at Chinese primary school
In November, five people were killed when a vehicle plowed into a crowd of children outside a northeastern Chinese kindergarten. The attack comes a day after a Chinese man was put to death for injuring 12 children in a knife attack at a nursery in China.

Other significant elements of the plan include: improving out-of-hospital care by supporting primary medical and community health services; also drawing on these to support older people through more personalised care; and an emphasis on improving maternity safety. "And while commitments for the NHS to do more to promote public health are welcome, cuts to local government funding for public health services underline the need for a more consistent approach across government to the population's health".

The General Medical Council (GMC) suggested the United Kingdom should consider migrant workers in future workforce planning after a poll revealed many doctors were considering quitting the NHS or cutting their hours because they felt stressed or overburdened.

Technology will give people "more control over the care they receive and more support to manage their health, to keep themselves well and better manage their conditions, while assisting carers in their vital work". A second facility, which will be operated in partnership between the Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and gambling addiction charity GamCare, will open in April this year.

They added that "almost everything" within the plan is being implemented successfully somewhere within the NHS, and that the plan will now ensure these initiatives are rolled out across the entire organisation. England's 10-Year Health Plan The expanded program aims to close in the gap between physical and mental health treatments.

United Kingdom alcohol watchdog the Portman Group has welcomed the new NHS Long Term Plan, which will create teams to support people who are alcohol dependant in England.

NHS Confederation chief executive Niall Dickson welcomed the "vision to strengthen and improve services" set out in the document, but warned: "The plan cannot escape the harsh reality that the NHS will still face tough decisions on what it can and cannot do".

"The demand for our services is ever-increasing while the care and support that families need is becoming more and more complex".

All in all, Mr Speaker, the NHS Long Term Plan has been drawn up by the NHS: by over 2,500 doctors, clinicians, staff, and patients.
