Sustainability and Transformation Partnership
The NHS and local councils have come together in 44 areas across England to develop proposals to improve health and care. They have formed new partnerships – known as sustainability and transformation partnerships – to plan jointly for the next few years.
In Sussex and East Surrey, our STP has 24 partners (including QVH) all working together to meet the changing needs of all the people who live in our area. Collectively we want to offer better health, better care and to ensure we make the most efficient use of our resources.
Our partners include local authorities, health and care providers and clinical commissioning groups. It is the first time we have all worked together in this way and gives us an opportunity to bring about significant improvements in health and care over the next five years, over and above the improvements that may already taking place in your local area.
The STP is a partnership and a way of working. It is not an organisation, or a single separate plan. It is a way of making sure that the partners’ plans are joined up and working together. The aim is to ensure that no part of the health and care system operates in isolation.
Our values are humanity, continuous improvement of care and pride, under-pinned by quality.
