Humber, Coast & Vale Sustainability and Transformation Partnership

What are Sustainability Transformation Partnerships and why do they matter

A useful description of what Sustainability Transformation Plans (STPs) now known as Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships are and why they matter has been produced by The King's Fund and published on their website.

The Humber Coast and Vale STP

The Humber Coast and Vale Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) is a set of proposals put forward by a partnership of local authorities, NHS commissioners and providers and other community based organisations in the Yorkshire and Humber region. NHS Scarborough and Ryedale Clinical Commisioning Group is one of the partners. These partners are working together to form the Humber Coast and Vale Sustainability and Transformation Partnership.

The STP suggests how we will work together to transform the way that health and care is planned and delivered for local people. NHS England has created a short animation to help describe STPs. It explains what these local proposals for health and social care aim to do.  

A website for the programme is now live and you can use it to find our calendar of events, questionnaires and other materials. You can visit the website now to find out more about our shared vision for health and social care in Humber Coast and Vale and also leave your feedback.

The plans (you can read a summary of the STP here and an FAQ document) are about making practical changes in the way we deliver services for people and communities. On a local level to Scarborough, Ryedale Bridlington and Filey, the Ambition for Health programme is how we will be delivering on our commitment to the STP.

The overall vision of our STP is for everyone in Humber Coast and Vale to start well, live well and age well and to do that, we must support everyone to manage their own care better, reduce dependence on hospitals and use our resources more efficiently so that we can all rely upon access to good, safe services into the future.

Over the coming months we will build on the engagement we have carried out over the past two years, talking to local people and our staff. We will be working with Healthwatch and other voluntary sector partners to make sure that we have sought and heard views from a wide range of communities and the ideas from those groups will be built into our plans.
