Health and Care services are going through an unprecedented period of change to ensure we deliver sustainable services for the population for the future. The Sustainability and Transformation Plan developed by all the health and social care partners across the footprint has set out how we will redesign services to deliver the NHS England 5 Year Forward View and its subsequent “next steps” report. Our local Sustainability and Transformation Plan known as the Better Health, Better Care, Better Value Programme sets out how our health and care system will be transformed delivering better health outcomes for our populations and a sustainable health and care system.
