New Plans for Health & Social Care

NHS England has told local NHS Organisations to develop new plans for their local area. These plans are called Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs).

Over the past few months Healthwatch Central West London have been speaking to people across the three boroughs to find out how much is known about the STPs.

They have now published these findings, which you can read by going to their website here and choosing the borough you work, live, or study in.

You can also find information in their ‘What, Why and How,’ guide to the Sustainability and Transformation Plans here.
