Sustainability transformation plan and NHS five year forward view
Working together to transform services
The health and care needs of our local population across B&NES, Swindon and Wiltshire are diverse and we are developing a joint approach that takes this local variation into account. Our joint work will not replace individual organisational plans or our B&NES, Swindon and Wiltshire Health & Wellbeing Strategies. And it will not stop all the great work already going on locally to improve local services.
The emerging STP focuses on shared challenges and opportunities across the wider geographical footprint. This is 'place-based' planning that is not limited by organisational boundaries and covers CCGs, NHS providers, specialised services and primary care. It also includes better integration with local authorities including social care, prevention and self-care. Some of our partner organisations such as AWP, Sirona and SWASFT operate beyond our combined area and so will overlap with other STP footprints.
