Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs)

What is a Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP)?

Every health and care system in England is now required to produce a Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP), showing how health and care services will evolve and become sustainable over the next five years and will deliver the aims of the NHS Five Year Forward View  including the Mental Health Forward View

STPs must meet the needs of the local population and drive changes to improve the quality of care, the health and wellbeing of the local population and the efficiency of services. They must also be financially sustainable.

In which STPs is AWP a partner?

Mental health is central to STPs. There are two STPs within the AWP area and we are key partners in both. We are advising both STPs on mental health, highlighting its importance as a 'golden thread' running through the STPs and making sure the plans give mental health parity with physical health.

AWP is one of 17 partners in Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire (BSW) STP

AWP is one of 15 partners in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) STP

Please see the BSW plan and BNSSG plan tabs below for full listings of the organisations brought together by each of these STPs.

This joint work will not stop all the great work already going on to improve local services and the STPs will not replace individual organisational plans or wellbeing strategies. But in AWP we will be making sure that our own strategies and plans fit with the STPs and therefore efficient within, supportive of, and supported by our local health and care communities.

There will be opportunities for service users, carers and the public to have their say on these emerging plans and their continuing development and implementation over the next five years.

Any proposals for significant changes that emerge from the plans will be subject to specific engagement and consultation where required. The STPs are working with the local Healthwatch and other organisations to agree arrangements for local engagement.
