NHS bosses have said that the new 10-year plan could save as many as 500,000 lives through its focus on prevention and early detection of strokes, heart problems, and cancer.
The plan was welcomed by campaigners, but experts warned that implementing it would be hard.
The NHS has revealed its long-term plan, setting out how it hopes to improve health care across England in the next five to 10 years.
NHS England chief Simon Stevens said the plan also "tackles head on" the pressures faced by health staff - but the service and the Government were under pressure to set out how it will recruit extra staff to ease the strain on its members and address the "harsh realities" faced by workers.

A routine health checkup could help save life and prolonged health issues but despite it being offered free by the NHS in England to people below 50 years, less than half the nation's citizens have taken part in the health drive.
Cancer charities gave the plans a cautious welcome.
She said: "We welcome the increased focus and funding for community health services and mental health".
The Plan will open a digital "front door" to the health service, allowing patients to be able to access health care at the touch of a button and ensure every hospital with a major A&E department has "same day emergency care" in place.
Measures outlined in the plan include providing mental health assistance to 345,000 more children and young people and offering whole genome sequencing to children with cancer and young people who have a rare genetic disorder.
The plan prioritises improved access for mental health services, expansion of personal health budgets, improvements to maternity care and support for the ageing population in England, with other parts of the United Kingdom being funded separately.
Our Long Term Plan will ensure the NHS continues to be there, free at the point of use, based on clinical need, not ability to pay, better resourced with more staff. "We will therefore expand geographical coverage of NHS services for people with serious gambling problems, and work with partners to tackle the problem at source".
Under "The NHS Long-Term Plan", primary care networks will be part of shared savings schemes, through which they will keep savings made by medication reviews carried out by pharmacists.
