• ensure all children get the best start in life by continuing to improve maternity safety including halving the number of stillbirths, maternal and neonatal deaths and serious brain injury by 2025
• support older people through more personalised care and stronger community and primary care services • make digital health services a mainstream part of the NHS, so that in 5 years, patients in England will be able to access a digital GP offer
