The Long-term (Neurological) Conditions National Service Framework (NSF) was launched in March 2005. The NSF aims to transform the way health and social care services support people to live with long-term neurological conditions. Key themes are independent living, care planned around the needs and choices of the individual, easier, timely access to services and joint working across all agencies and disciplines involved. The principles of the NSF are also relevant to service development for other long-term conditions. This NSF is a key tool for delivering the governmentâ?Ts strategy to support people with long-term conditions outlined in the White Paper Our health, our care, our say and the NHS Improvement Plan: Putting People at the Heart of Public Services. It applies to health and social services working with local agencies involved in supporting people to live independently, such as providers of transport, housing, employment, education, benefits and pensions.
