Asked on: 20 February 2018
Department of Health and Social Care
Drugs: Rehabilitation
To ask Her Majesty's Government how NHS-led Sustainability and Transformation Plans, including accountable care systems of integrated health and social care, will work with local authority procured substance misuse services to ensure vulnerable service users are given the right priority of access to treatment and care.
Answered by: Lord O'Shaughnessy
Answered on: 05 March 2018

The Government is clear that decisions about service provision are best taken at a local level by local clinicians.

Sustainability and transformation partnerships (STPs) are five-year collaborations between the National Health Service, local government and other key partners for improving health and wellbeing, developing new models of care, and improving the quality and efficiency of services in local areas across England.

The way STPs work in practice will vary according to the needs of different parts of the country and any decision on how they will work with local substance misuse services will be taken at a local level.
