What is the Sustainability and Transformation Plan and how do plans for primary care in B&NES link in to this?

Health and care organisations from B&NES, Swindon and Wiltshire are working together to develop a Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP). By working together we aim to improve our local population’s health and wellbeing, improve service quality and deliver financial stability.

The plan has a very strong primary care focus and our joint approach will help to deliver the aims of the GP Forward View. NHS England’s Director of Primary Care, Dr Arvind Madan, has written a very good blog post to explain how STPs could transform the care patients receive through GP services.
