More (but essential) changes for the NHS

Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs) offer the best hope to improve health & care services despite having been beset by problems so far, according to a new report from The King's Fund.

STPs – plans for the future of health & care services being developed in 44 areas of England – have been strongly criticised by politicians, local authority leaders and patient groups.  The new report, based on interviews with senior leaders in four STP areas, supports many of the criticisms.
