Sustainability and transformation partnership

In December 2015, the national NHS outlined a new approach to help ensure that health and care services are built around the needs of local populations.

To do this, every health and care system in England was asked to produce a sustainability and transformation plan (STP). This plan shows how local services will evolve and become sustainable over the next five years to deliver on the national Five Year Forward View

We have worked with local health and care partners, including Bradford City CCG and Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven CCG to develop a local STP for Bradford and Craven. You can take a look at the STP for Bradford and Craven here. Our Bradford and Craven STP forms part of the West Yorkshire wide STP.

West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership - joint committee of the 11 Clinical Commissioning Groups

In November 2016 West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership (also known as the STP) published a draft plan for the area.  You can read this here

This plan describes how health and care organisations, including the clinical commissioning groups will work together on the three aims of the Five Year Forward View

  • to improve the health of people
  • provide better care
  • ensure financial sustainability. 

It was developed in partnership with and is owned by health care organisations and local councils across West Yorkshire and Harrogate. 

The Joint Committee for the 11 Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in West Yorkshire and Harrogate (WY&H) is part of the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership. It has a shared health programme of work that aims to further improve the health and wellbeing of the 2.6 million people living across the area. Our CCG is part of this committee. 

The Committee has joint delegated powers from individual CCGs to make collective decisions around specific work programmes, for example mental health, urgent care and stroke.

A key part of the work involves sharing expertise and working closely with local councils, hospitals, care providers and voluntary and community organisations - ensuring services are fit for the future in a challenging financial environment. 

The Joint Committee meets in public every other month. To register your interest in attending these meetings please email westyorkshire.stp@nhs.net or call 01924 317502.
