View Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs)

NHS organisations and local councils are developing shared proposals to improve health and care. Working in 44 geographical areas covering all of England (called ‘footprints’), the plans are led by senior figures from different parts of the local health and care system.

The proposals are designed around the needs of whole areas, not just individual organisations, following discussion with staff, patients and others in the communities they serve.

The latest thinking is set out in 44 Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs). These can be viewed below, alongside details of who is leading work in each footprint area.
