The Nottingham and Nottinghamshire STP has published an Update to their joint, five-year Plan for health and social care.
The draft Plan was published in November 2016. Since then, the STP organisations has been seeking and listening to the views of local people, staff and stakeholders through meetings, events and written feedback.
A total of 395 people attended the four public events held in January and February this year. In addition, 80 representatives from the voluntary and community sector came together for an engagement event for those working in organisations that support local people alongside mainstream health and social care services. Written feedback from 69 respondents was also received via email and an online survey.
Views were sought on the five priority areas and the strategic direction of the draft Plan. General comments on the contents of the Plan were also captured through the various feedback opportunities.
The full breakdown and summary of the feedback received was published last month.
The STP has now published an Update to the initial Plan, reflecting the comments and suggestions of those who gave their views. There are specific sections on mental health and services for children and young people and carers as these were areas that people felt needed strengthening within the Plan.

Greater Nottingham Transformation Partnership
The Greater Nottingham Transformation Partnership is working to find new ways to better join up health and social care in our area. The partnership is made up of all the organisations responsible for health and care in Greater Nottingham: the NHS, local councils and other healthcare providers.
All of our work is guided by trying to improve health and care for people in Greater Nottingham:
- We want everyone to lead happy, healthy lives and be able to stay independent and well
- When people need help, advice or support, they should easily be able to find out how and where to get it
- Help and support should be more joined up across health and social care, and be delivered closer to home, with hospitals only for those who need to be there
It is being coordinated by the Greater Nottingham Transformation Partnership Board – which has representatives from every NHS and local authority in our area, as well as citizen and patient groups such as Healthwatch and the Greater Nottingham Citizens’ Advisory Group. Eventually, we hope this work will join up health and social care into an accountable care system.
