NHS England leads the NHS in England, setting the priorities and direction of the NHS and informing the national debate to improve health and care.
We want everyone to have greater control of their health and wellbeing, and to be supported to live longer, healthier lives by high quality health and care services that are compassionate, inclusive and constantly-improving.
NHS England shares out more than £100 billion in funds and holds organisations to account for their spending. Our work involves the commissioning of health care services in England, commissioning the contracts for GPs, pharmacists, and dentists and we support local health services that are led by groups of GPs called Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). We have devised and are delivering a strategic vision for the NHS, along with our partners in health, called the Five Year Forward View. This vision shows that we are getting serious about prevention, identifying and delivering improvements in health care, redesigning the NHS so it continues to meet the needs of patients, ensuring the NHS is financially sustainable and engaging the public in this whole process.
We strongly believe in health and high quality care for all, now and for future generations.

The System Transformation Group (STG) is a national team responsible for catalysing the development of Integrated Care Systems (ICS).
The STG will see through the commitment in Next Steps on the Five Year Forward View to make “the biggest national move towards integrated care of any western country”.
Many of the challenges the NHS faces are systemic; for example, taking the strain off of A&Es is the collective job of GPs, hospitals, urgent treatment centres, 111, local government and care homes. Similarly, improving cancer or mental health services requires the collaboration of several organisations, working together systematically in new ways.
So the first task for the STG is to catalyse and support the emergence of meaningful and effective health systems across the country, building on the 44 Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs) that have been established. These have begun in different places and will mature at different speeds.
The strongest systems – designated as ‘integrated care systems’ (ICSs) –will go further by integrating services and funding, and by redesigning how care is provided. ICSs will implement validated population health models that proactively seek to prevent illness or acute deterioration.
Working closely with our regionally-based colleagues as well as at NHS Improvement, the STG is responsible for:
- Supporting systems to deliver the NHS’ key priorities: redesigned urgent and emergency care, stronger and more accessible primary care, improved mental health and cancer services;
- Developing population health analytics and disseminating learning about how to redesign care in response to this intelligence, drawing on the best of the new care model vanguards;
- Developing and testing new models of regulatory oversight and system-wide metrics;
- Developing system control totals, alternative payment models and supporting cross-system efficiencies;
- Reshaping commissioning to enable integrated providers to emerge and to reflect the movement away from payment by results (PbR);
- Convening ICSs and STPs as a leadership group and providing platforms for peer-to-peer learning;
- Arranging other support as required - for example, on technology or workforce - drawing on other teams and outside experts;
- Overall strategy and policy as it relates to the development of integrated health systems in England.
