Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP)

The Buckingham, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP)

The NHS and local councils have formed Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs) in 44 areas covering all of England, to improve health and care. Each area has developed proposals built around the needs of the whole population in the area, not just those of individual organisations.

They aim to help meet a ‘triple challenge’ set out in the NHS Five Year Forward View – better health, transformed quality of care delivery, and sustainable finances.

In our area the STP covers Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West; otherwise referred to as BOB.

The BOB STP covers a population of 1.8 million, seven Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), six NHS Trusts and 14 local authorities and 175 GP surgeries.
