Birmingham and Solihull Sustainability and Transformation Plan published
Birmingham and Solihull is the first footprint to publish their Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP).
From Birmingham City Council: The NHS, Birmingham City Council and Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council have worked together to develop a draft Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP). The plan sets out how they will improve the health and wellbeing of people living in Birmingham and Solihull.
Through the plan, the STP leaders outline how they want Birmingham and Solihull’s people to receive consistently high quality health and care services, have early access to extra support when they need it and easy access to help when citizens can no longer live independently. The plan proposes what could be done to improve and transform the city’s primary care, community, social care, mental health, maternity and wider hospital services.
The plan has been submitted to NHS England for review, and will continued to be developed going forward.
