Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs)

NHS organisations and local councils developed shared proposals to improve health and care, working in 44 areas covering all of England.

Known as sustainability and transformation partnerships (STPs), STPs were created to bring local health and care leaders together to plan around the long-term needs of local communities. They were drawn up by senior figures from different parts of the local health and care system, following discussion with staff, patients and others in the communities they serve.

NELFT provides services across six STPs and is a key partner in three of these:

We work in partnership with commissioners and providers across these STPs to support the delivery of integrated care for our local communities.
