Mrs May said the combination of the 10-year-old plan and increased funding would "provide the certainty and long-term direction needed" to transform patient care as well as "secure the future" of the health service.

Mr Speaker, the Long Term Plan focuses on the most common causes of mortality, including cancer, heart disease, stroke and lung disease.

Chief Executive of th eHealth Foundation think-tank, Jennifer Dixon, has also prediction it will be "extremely tough" to fulfil pledges outlined due to the scale of staffing shortages, rising pressure, and cuts to other parts of the wider healthcare system.

Paul Farmer, chief executive of Mind, said if the plan is implemented it could make a difference to the lives of thousands of people. The plan recognises the importance of prevention for physical health and we need the same approach for mental health.

So how many more staff are needed to achieve the improvements set out in the plan? We went through it, so you don't have to.

Chief executive of NHS Providers Chris Hopson said there are "a range" of issues central to the success of the NHS that must be resolved through the spending review this year, including social care and public health.

However, this increase is reliant on local CCGs agreeing to fund some of the work of their local hospice which will then be match funded by NHS England.

The GMC said non-UK workers presented opportunities to support NHS locations that were short of doctors as migrants joining the workforce may have higher mobility when they first came to the UK.

"We will invest in expanding NHS specialist clinics to help more people with serious gambling problems", the plan states. This, in turn, reduces the demand for health and care services. World class care requires world class funding and the investment in the long-term plan will still leave the United Kingdom falling behind comparative nations like France and Germany.

Mental health experts have applauded the commitment to closing the care gap.

Mrs May said that the ambitions set out in the plan, which several experts warned would be hard to achieve, was affordable in part because the United Kingdom would no longer be sending "vast annual sums" to Brussels after it leaves the European Union. The report noted that the NHS is struggling to meet the standards of care as indicated in its constitution. "Sadly so numerous measures outlined. are a rehash of what has already been promised for years", she tweeted. Advice to be available from NHS 111, 24/7 by 2023. The move has been criticised by some mental health campaigners - journalist Hannah Jane Parkinson tweeted: "This is not mental health care".

National Health Service Trusts have already been told they can't buy any more fax machines from this month, and the devices will be banned by 2020. "We look forward to making a full and positive contribution".

An estimated 23,000 lives could be saved by putting 100,000 patients with heart problems through a health living and exercise programme each year.

The government has claimed that new digital technologies will help generate savings of more than £700 million across the NHS.

There'll be a focus on increasing access to care for women with perinatal mental health difficulties, with a view to helping an additional 24,000 women per year by 2023/24.

More support for mothers by improving maternity services, more support for parents and carers in the early years of a child's life so we can be the best place in the world - and this country can be the best place to be born, in every sense.
