Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs) dashboard

At the end of last month NHS England published an STP “dashboard”. According to their announcement, this should give “an initial baseline assessment of the new sustainability and transformation partnership areas – set up across the country to improve care through collaboration between services.”  It is a prototype “progress dashboard – which will continue to evolve – indicates the starting point from which STPs will drive improvements in care”. The full data is available on the NHS England web site: www.england.nhs.uk/stpdashboard

 

The rating is driven by indicators in three broad areas: hospital performance, patient-focused change, and transformation. These are measured in nine domains: emergency care; elective care; safety; general practice; mental health; cancer; prevention; finance and system leadership. It will be interesting to examine these against the responses we get from STP leaders following our exercise to contact them all earlier this year about their plans for neurology services.

 

It was also confirmed that there will be local capital investment schemes in 15 areas of the country, with the largest sums being used for urgent care in Dorset, surgery in Greater Manchester and cancer care in Cumbria. According to NHS England, this initial funding has been targeted at the “strongest and most advanced plans put forward by local health and social care leaders.”
