Health Committee

Sustainability and Transformation Plans inquiry

Inquiry status: Closed

The current Health Committee will cease to exist on the dissolution of Parliament on 3 May. It will be for the new Committee in the next Parliament to decide whether to proceed with the inquiry. If it does so, a new deadline for written submissions will be set. Submissions which have already been sent will be made available to the new Committee.

Scope of the inquiry

Following publication by NHS England of the Next Steps on the NHS Forward View, the House of Commons Health Committee is announcing an inquiry into sustainability and transformation plans.

Next Steps says

STPs began life as pragmatic vehicles for enabling health and care organisations within an area to chart their own way to keeping people healthier for longer, improving care, reducing health inequalities and managing their money, working jointly on behalf of the people they serve. They are a means to an end, a mechanism for delivering the Forward View and the key national priorities in this Plan. (p.32)

Terms of reference: Sustainability and Transformation Plans
