NHS England has created a short animation to help describe Sustainability Transformation Plans (STPs). It clearly and simply explains what these local proposals for Health and Social Care aim to do.

Since its creation in 1948, the NHS has constantly adapted and must continue to do so as the world and our health needs change.

STPs aim to make common-sense improvements in areas that matter to people, like making it easier to see a GP, speeding up cancer diagnosis and offering faster help to people with mental ill health.
