There's no single part of the health and social care system that operates in isolation, and in the same way we'll develop our five-year plan in an inclusive way so that it meets the needs of professionals, aligns with the work of our partners, meets the expectations that the public has, and helps us do the best job that we possibly can.  A co-production.

Over the next 12 months we will be working with as many people as possible to get their input into our plan for the next five years. 

In April 2020 we will launch our five-year plan outlining an ambitious vision for the NMC, with areas of focus and a clear plan of how to get there.
