Sustainability and Transformation Plan published
This month the Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) has been published. This sets out how health and social care services will be commissioned across the city region over the next five years, and how budgets (and their cuts) will be managed.
The plan for Sheffield seems to be still at a level of principles, and inevitably the impact will come through once information about how it will be implemented comes through. At a broad level it focusses on keeping people local for their care where possible, combined with access to specialist support where it is needed. We are looking to lead some engagement events in the new year to gather a wider range of views on the STP to feed into decision makers.
