The document sets out the government’s vision for:

  • stopping health problems from arising in the first place
  • supporting people to manage their health problems when they do arise

The goal is to improve healthy life expectancy by at least 5 extra years, by 2035, and to close the gap between the riches and poorest.

A collection of case studies has been published, showing examples of good practice in preventing health problems from happening.
