Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP)
NHS organisations across Durham, Darlington, Tees, Hambleton, Richmondshire and Whitby have published their draft Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP), which was submitted to NHS England in October.
This is in response to NHS England which has asked NHS commissioners and providers to work together to develop STPs as improvement plans for their area, and to work with local authorities and other partners to ...deliver these.
The STP identifies four areas for improvement:
- Preventing ill health and increasing self-care
- Health and care in communities and neighbourhoods
- Quality of care in hospitals - 'Better Health Programme'
- Use of technology in health care
