In the aftermath of the 2017 WannaCry attacks, and more recent reports of a breach of DNA data, this target may not be soon enough - but the starting point has to be considered, as it was recently found that a quarter of trusts have no staff with security qualifications.

At the heart of this plan is the principle that prevention is better than cure.

Patients' personal health records will hold a care plan with information added by themselves or an authorised carer.

"However, securing this additional funding is entirely dependent on working together with local NHS clinical commissioning groups (CCGs)". This, in turn, reduces the demand for health and care services.

This already happens in the best parts of the NHS and there's been a huge amount of work to support the people who work in the NHS.

Chief Executive of th eHealth Foundation think-tank, Jennifer Dixon, has also prediction it will be "extremely tough" to fulfil pledges outlined due to the scale of staffing shortages, rising pressure, and cuts to other parts of the wider healthcare system.

We know that immediate action is needed for children and young people's services as they have become woefully underfunded and overstretched.

And we will expand services for young people to include people up to the age of 25.

"Too often, those with gambling addiction suffer in silence, which is why we will continue to work closely with the NHS to help make sure there are good links between the services we commission and those commissioned by the NHS".

And we will upgrade urgent care so people can get the right care more quickly.

"The green paper and the NHS long term plan should have been developed in parallel".

Following the publishing of the NHS's long-term plan today by Theresa May and NHS England chief executive Simon Stevens, a greater focus will be placed on integrated care, improving outcomes for major diseases, and the commitment to save up to 500,000 more lives over the next decade.
