Stakeholder Views of the Sustainability and Transformation Plans

The National Health Executive (NHE) has reported on a number of stakeholder views of the Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs). In their article the NHE explain how the President of the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) Professor Jane Dacre has warned that delivering STPs under the current timeframe and to financial targets will be “extremely challenging” whilst Dame Ruth Carnall, a trustee of The King’s Fund, last week also stated that STPs represented a “workaround” to serious deficiencies in health and social care. Chair of the College of Medicine Dr Michael Dixon also said at the beginning of the month that STPs were “totally aspirational,” and needed to be backed by proper funding and corporate governance to be successful.
