Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria - Sustainability and Transformation Partnership

Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria is the Sustainability and Transformation Partnership for the region.

For Lancashire and South Cumbria residents, the Sustainability and Transformation Partnership means greater partnership working between NHS, local government, patient groups and community, voluntary and faith organisations through the Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria programme.

The partnership is working to help people stay more healthy so they can avoid time in hospital, make it easier for people to see a GP and get help faster for people with mental ill health.

An easy to understand guide has been published to explain how this sees organisations coming together to improve outcomes and care for local people, reduce pressures on services and make best use of our financial resources. This is available here

What is Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria?

Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria is a partnership of organisations with a shared vision for health and care across our region. We benefit from services that are already working in partnership. The staff involved in those services know we are facing some really tough challenges. They realise we need to act now to ensure we can safeguard our services for the future.

Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria is made up of five local areas: Central Lancashire, West Lancashire, Pennine Lancashire, Fylde Coast and the Bay Health & Care Partners area. Organisations in Lancashire and South Cumbria are involved in improvements that need to happen across the whole region and are working to develop local plans in these areas.

Lancashire and South Cumbria is one of 44 STP ‘footprints’ that have been established across England to deliver the NHS Five Year Forward View vision of better health, better patient care and improved NHS efficiency.


What is the Sustainability and Transformation Plan?

In November 2016, Healthier Lancashire & South Cumbria published a draft document called a Sustainability and Transformation Plan.

The Sustainability and Transformation Plan was required by NHS England to state some of the challenges we face and how we are working together. Its purpose was to encourage further thinking about potential solutions. As stated in the STP, it draws together local plans which are being developed by local organisations that do engage and listen to both patients, public and staff about the challenges they face.

The Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) reaffirmed the need for health and care organisations to work together to transform services and the way people use and access them.

    Organisations in Lancashire and South Cumbria are involved in improvements that need to happen across the whole region and are working to develop local plans by working together in five areas. These are the Fylde coast, Pennine Lancashire, Central Lancashire, West Lancashire and Morecambe Bay.

    New ways of working on the Fylde coast have been highlighted by NHS England as an exemplar of good practice and those, or similar developments, could be replicated across the whole of Lancashire and South Cumbria to the benefit of the population of the whole region. The Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria programme will enable innovations on the Fylde Coast and best practice from the other localities to be spread more widely and quickly as and when lessons are learned from the implementation process.

    Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria has published an easy to understand guide to the challenges in health and care for the region and how organisations are working together to create solutions to tackle them. This is available at www.healthierlsc.co.uk

    Dr Amanda Doyle, a Blackpool GP and Chief Officer for Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria said: “This means organisations across Lancashire and South Cumbria working in a collaborative way as a Sustainability and Transformation Partnership. This will allow us to develop solutions and make decisions together in the interest of our local communities.

    “The pressures the NHS is under are well-known and so making best use of the money, staff and services we have is crucial.

    “The document which we have published aims to help local people and health and care staff to understand the shared challenges we face in our area, how we need to work together to tackle these and how local people need to be involved.”
