Health and care organisations across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight (HIOW) have been working together to create a Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP).
The central role of the STP has been to support the local place based plans to achieve the changes that local people and local clinicians have told us they want. The plan does not replace or slow down local transformation programmes. Instead, organisations have come together to do the things that can only be achieved by working in partnership.
We have learned a great deal from working with and listening to local people over the past few years and this plan is rooted in these local discussions. Working together also allows us to better share best practice and ensure we are coordinated when we make local changes.
The challenges we face are not unique to our area. In fact, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight is one of 44 areas across England that are developing detailed local transformation and sustainability plans (STPs) to find ways of solving them. Most of the proposals in the plan will be familiar to you and to local people and clinicians, such as the future configuration of acute services for North and Mid Hampshire.
