To reflect the wide-ranging nature of the 5YFV, our work spans various themes including the new care models, efficiencies and productivity, public health and ill-health prevention and patient-centred care.
Below is an overview of our activity.
Efficiencies and productivity
We continue to press the point that the efficiencies required of the NHS in England - £22bn per year by 2020/21 – are unrealistic and unsustainable.

We have also highlighted successful initiatives that have sought to use NHS funding in the most effective way.

Public health and ill-health prevention
The BMA has a long history of successful lobbying on public health issues, for example around healthier diets, a tobacco-free society and alcohol control. We continue to influence the agenda nationally.

Sustainability and transformation plans
We have been analysing the plans to understand their impact on the NHS and we are working with members to lobby both locally and nationally.

The FYFV recognises the importance of the role that patients and their families have in their own care. The BMA's patient liaison group (PLG) produces resources to help members deliver high quality, patient-centred care.
