North Central London Sustainability and Transformation Plan
The health and care system across North Central London (NCL) - clinical commissioning groups, local authorities and NHS providers - have worked together to develop an NCL-wide sustainability and transformation plan (STP). This sets out how local health and care services will transform and become sustainable over the next five years, building and strengthening local relationships and ultimately delivering the Five Year Forward View vision.
For the NHS to meet the needs of future patients in a sustainable way, we need to close the gaps in health, finance and quality of care between where we are now and where we need to be in 2020/21.
In order to create a better future for the NHS, we must make changes to how local people live, access care, and how this care is delivered. This doesn’t mean doing less for patients or reducing the quality of care provided. It means more preventative care; finding new ways to meet people’s needs; and identifying ways to do things more efficiently.
- To improve health and wellbeing outcomes for the people of North Central London and ensure sustainable health and social care services, built around the needs of local people.
- To develop new models of care to achieve better outcomes for all; focused on prevention and out of hospital care.
- To work in partnership to commission, contract and deliver services efficiently and safely.
