NHS Digital business plan 2017-2018


Our business plan sets out what we'll do to meet our objectives and responsibilities in supporting health and care.

In 2017-2018, we will continue to focus on activities to support our vision: to harness the power of information and technology to make health and care better.

The plan sets out three main areas of activity. We will focus on:

  • designing, delivering and managing the secure and reliable IT services and infrastructure that health and care professionals rely on every day, and continuing to provide the data services that are essential for building a more efficient, better connected and smarter system
  • delivering the National Information Board strategy Personalised Health and Care 2020 - we are the lead national delivery organisation for the strategy's 10 domains of delivery, which connect work by all partners to clearly defined benefits for the public and frontline professionals (see our transforming health and care through technology pages for more details of these programmes)
  • continuing to change and improve our organisation so that we can meet our commitments under the Personalised Health and Care 2020 strategy, to our existing customers and partners, and to the public
