Sustainability and Transformation Plan Questionnaire Report

Sustainability and transformation plans (STPs) are the platform on which the Five Year Forward View of NHS planning is being taken forward in England. The Five Year Forward View envisages a radical upgrade of prevention as a lever to reducing demand on NHS and social care services. Public health specialists are also involved in planning and analysis of the effectiveness of healthcare services. The UK Faculty of Public Health (FPH) undertook a survey of directors of public health (DPHs) to look at the public health aspects of STPs in England, early in 2017. An outline report was presented to the FPH Board in February 2017. This report presents more detailed findings.
