Meeting the Prevention Challenge

Meeting the NHSÂ’s current efficiency goals requires a new solution and a focus on stemming demand through delaying or preventing the onset of need. The report highlights that treatment and care effectively extends the time an individual spends in the window of need, whereas prevention offers the potential to delay an individualÂ’s entry into this window improving outcomes for the individual and reducing the resource demands on services. The report aims to provide practical support to the required shift towards a prevention focused health and care system.
