How we're working with the NHS

Health and social care services nationally are increasingly working together to provide better support for residents' care needs.

Partnerships – known as sustainability and transformation partnerships (STPs) and integrated care systems (ICSs) – are aiming to:

  • improve quality and developing new models of care;
  • improve health and wellbeing of local people; and
  • improve efficiency of services.

The partnerships are made up of local authorities, clinical commissioning groups, health service providers and a range of local partners.

They set out how health and social care services need to change over the five year period from 2016-2021 to achieve the right care, and cover 44 geographical areas across all of England.

In Surrey, there are three partnerships in place. Find out more about the local plans by following the links below.
