  • Suffolk and North East Essex STP will collaborate; be innovative, and will inspire clinical and community leadership. STP partners want the best for local people.
  • Over the next five years the partnership will improve care for its public; the quality of services on offer; support for its workforce; and how it spends public money within budgets.
  • The public, clinicians, the voluntary sector and other partners expect the partnership to join forces to reduce duplication, inefficiency and make services easier to navigate.
  • By linking up services, the public will see GP surgeries, mental health and social care services, acute hospitals and community health professionals all working together, moving care closer to people’s homes and improving their outcomes.
