STP Summary Paper from BMA
Sustainability and transformation plans are five year plans detailing how local areas will work together to modernise health and care and achieve financial balance by 2020. In March 2016, England was divided into 44 geographic 'footprints' to create plans based on the local health needs.
These plans were submitted to NHS England and NHS Improvement in October 2016 and have since all been published.
The plans are still in development and areas will simultaneously start to implement the sections of the plan furthest ahead whilst continuing to work on other sections.
