Sustainability and Transformation Plans: summary guides

05 July 2016

Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs) have been introduced to help deliver the NHS Five Year Forward View vision of better health and improved NHS efficiency.

STPs are place-based, cross-sector, multi-year plans built around the needs of local populations. NHS England has published summary guides to support development of local STPs, outlining a vision of 2020 in which “prevalence of obesity is significantly lower due to improved approach to food and catering in health and care settings and the implementation of the Government’s forthcoming Childhood Obesity Strategy.”

The guidance states that a strong STP should incorporate a 'local cross-partner prevention plan, with particular action on national priorities of obesity and diabetes and locally identified priorities to reduce demand and improve the health of local people.'

This may be an opportunity for local food partnerships to contribute to the local health action planning.
