Find out more about Herefordshire and Worcestershire sustainability and transformation partnership (STP) including details of its population size, constituent organisations and priorities.

 

Priorities

The partnership is a collaborative between all local health and care organisations working across the area, supported by voluntary sector and Healthwatch representatives.

Current plans set out a direction of travel for the next four to five years. Priorities include:

  • Doing more to prevent illness and encouraging people to live healthier lives.
  • Encouraging people to self-care or self-manage more of the routine aspects of their conditions.
  • Improving access to GP appointments.
  • Improving community services which care for people at home, including making better use of technology.
  • Changing the role of community hospitals so more care and treatment is available closer to home.
  • Easier access to emergency/urgent care.
  • Making acute and specialist services more sustainable.
