Sustainability and Transformation Plans inquiry

Inquiry status: Closed Concluded

Due to the general election on 8 June 2017 the Committee has now closed this inquiry. Following the dissolution of Parliament on 3 May 2017, all Select Committees cease to exist until after the general election. If an inquiry on this subject is held in the future, the Committee may refer to the evidence already gathered as part of this inquiry.

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
