Five Year Forward View

Executive Summary

The Five-Year Forward View came to an end in 2019 and was superceded by the Long-Term Plan. Although no longer current, the Forward View set the scene for the tone of future initiatives and strategy around NHS England.

In October 2014, the Five Year Forward View was announced, aiming to rectify the NHS through a number of new care models with the objective of dissolving the boundaries between the different health organisations. This page looks at some of the initiatives such as vanguards, NHS’ 10 Point Efficiency Plan, accountable care systems and organisations and their shift towards integrated care systems.
