The Friends of the Elderly - Support for older people

NHS Sustainability and Transformation Plans

NHS England requires that local NHS produce two separate but connected plans:

  • A five year Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP), which drives the Five Year Forward View and is place-based
  • A one year Operational Plan for 2016/17, which is organisation-based but consistent with the above mentioned emerging STP

CAN is currently working to ensure that these plans will incorporate effective engagement with the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector and will circulate more information, when it becomes available.

You can read more about current progress, as well as see the 'checkpoint' document which gives an indication of early thinking, on the Healthwatch Norfolk website here
