Sustainable Transformation Plans - Estates

NHS England have published this aide memoire to support the development of Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs). STPs require local health and care partners to come together to create their own ambitious local blueprint for accelerating the implementation of the NHS Five Year Forward View.

As part of this process, a high level strategy is required on what NHS estate (primary care, out of hospital/ community, secondary, urgent and emergency care, tertiary, mental health and public health estate) is needed to deliver the STP against each CCG Local Estate Strategy and options to deliver against it. While there is no specific mention of housing, options could include which sites need to be retained, used more intensively or differently or divested and what new facilities are required, where and why.
