STPs – what do they mean for you and your NHS customers?

At the end of last year, the NHS published 44 sustainability and transformation plans (STPs) setting out the healthcare agenda for the next five years.

STPs are the Five year forward view in action, requiring commissioners, providers, hospitals and local authorities to agree one masterplan for their footprint, including the local NHS, rationalising and integrated services.

But what will the impact be on your business?
