NHS@75: Towards a healthy state

NHS@75 sets out a challenging vision for the health service in 2023 and outlines the deliberate and courageous action needed to deliver this aspiration.

Our four future visions for 2023 are based around two key characteristics:

  • Responsibility: the extent to which people take responsibility for their own health and care
  • Adaptability: the degree to which the system adapts to the drivers of change and needs of the public

Four potential future states of the health system

The healthy state is not only the future that most people aspire to, it is also the only viable option for the NHS to continue to deliver its core principles in 2023.

Achieving a healthy state by 2023 will require radical change across the health service, based around 10 core steps.
