Sustainability and Transformation Plans - Briefing

Sustainability and Transformation Plans

Announced in December 2015, Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs) were first detailed in the NHS shared planning guidance 16/17 – 20/21.

In addition to the individual operational plans normally submitted by NHS organisations, the guidance asked every health and care system to work together to produce the multiyear STPs, illustrating how local services would evolve over time.

This briefing, written by Dods ' health consultant Adam Wright, explains the background to the STP deals and looks at what lies ahead for the future of the plans.
