Frimley Health and Care Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP)
"Health and social care is about to get better for the 750,000 residents of East Berkshire, North East Hampshire and Farnham, and Surrey Heath".
We're working hard with our neighbouring NHS organisations, local councils and community partners to introduce a new plan that will make services for people’s physical and mental wellbeing more accessible, closer to home and delivered in a more straightforward way.
Our Frimley Health and Care Sustainability and Transformation Plan is one of 44 plans set up across the country to deliver the ‘Five Year Forward View’ vision of better health, better patient care and improved efficiency. Our plan sets out how this will be achieved locally and how services will evolve and become more sustainable over the next five years.
This plan expands upon the work which is already underway in local communities to transform services for people by improving care and helping them to live longer healthier lives. Local people will have access to high quality consistent care as close to home as possible, with specialist services centralised where necessary.
The central role of our STP is to support plans to achieve the changes that local people and local clinicians have told us they want.
The plan focusses on the following priorities:
- Developing communities and social networks so that people have the skills, support and confidence to look after themselves.
- Focusing on NHS staffing to ensure the workforce is ready to meet the demands of our communities.
- Delivering consistent care for all aspects of a person’s life.
- Using technology to help improve outcomes and increase efficiency.
Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West (BOB footprint) Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP)
We're working with our neighbouring NHS organisations, local councils and community partners to develop a Sustainability and Transformation Plan for the Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West areas.
Within the BOB footprint, local system work will continue between health and social care partners, to achieve improvements to patient experience and outcomes alongside effective use of our collective resources. For us, this means continuing to work as part of the Berkshire West Integration Programme and developing the Accountable Care System (ACS) with Berkshire West health partners.
We're hoping to launch the formal plan in early 2017.
