National recovery is at the heart of the Government’s plans for the year ahead.
As the phenomenal success of the vaccine rollout continues, our focus is on rebuilding from the pandemic and delivering improvements that matter to people.
The plans announced in the Queen’s Speech on 11 May will boost jobs, improve regulation, and give more people access to education and skills training after leaving school.
We’re also making our infrastructure fit for the future with plans to extend 5G mobile coverage and gigabit capable broadband. These are needed more than ever with more people working from home.
Additional funding to support our NHS, a renewed focus on providing care closer to home, and improving mental health, will make a big difference to healthcare services.
We will also be setting out plans for social care reform later this year so that we have a system that is fitter and fairer for the future.
