Health and social care organisations in Derbyshire have been working closely together for some time, to improve care and services for people and make them as efficient and effective as possible.
STP stands for sustainability and transformation partnership. These are 44 areas covering all of England, where local NHS organisations and councils have drawn up proposals to improve health and care in the areas they serve.
STP can also stand for ‘sustainability and transformation plan’, plans drawn up in each of these areas setting out practical ways to improve NHS services and population health in every part of England.
They aim to help meet a ‘triple challenge’ set out in the NHS Five Year Forward View – better health, transformed quality of care, and sustainable finances.
The local STP is called Joined Up Care Derbyshire.
An STP is not an organisation and will not replace the current structures. STPs are plans that simply provide a framework for different organisations to work together across the county and across communities to plan for the needs of their population from now until 2021.
Joined Up Care Derbyshire sets out our five year plan until 2021. It is a live document and will continually evolve. This website contains the latest news updates about the plan.
We have been hearing from the public and staff in partner organisations over many months to inform the plan and raise awareness and understanding.
We want to make sure we listen to as many people as possible and continue to have conversations about how we deliver better, joined up care, much closer to where people live. Please see our ‘Get Involved’ page for more information.
Joined Up Care Derbyshire brings together organisations that either buy (commission) or provide health and social care services. See ‘Our partners’ page for more information.
The secondments working on the Derbyshire STP are:
Consultancy fees to date shared across the Derbyshire STP and set out as a total cost:
Our original plans did not specific highlight capital/transformation funding.
To date the Derbyshire system has been successful in securing capital funding as set out below:
WAVE 1 STP Capital Bid approved for £5.9m for the development in Belper. To find out more about the Belper plans visit http://www.southernderbyshireccg.nhs.uk/have-your-say/engagements/belper-health-services/
WAVE2 STP Capital Bid approved for £40m to University Hospitals of Derby and Burton FT (UHDB) and Chesterfield Royal FT. The business cases are now being prepared for both of the STP Capital approved bids, one for each main acute site.
Our STP document and business cases provide the details of our plans around workforce, which can be viewed on our website www.joinedupcarederbyshire.co.uk.
We did not commit to a projected workforce within our original STP and our current plans are to use a different skill mix and have more staff working in the community. The table below sets our current workforce figures:
As part of our original STP an estimate was made as to the likely reduction in beds across the county. In the North of Derbyshire a number of beds have already been closed as part of Better Care Closer to Home, where extensive consultation was undertaken. For more information visit http://www.northderbyshireccg.nhs.uk/better-care-closer-to-home
A full capacity and demand profile of our acute and community beds across the Derbyshire system is currently being planned. Until the outcome of that work in late 2018/early 2019 we will not be in a position to clearly articulate the projected bed numbers.
We can provide you with a figure for our current bed numbers using the Daily Bed State the figures are:
When the STP was produced in 2016 we stated that by 2021 there will be a £219m financial gap for Derbyshire’s health system – with an extra £136m gap for local authority care costs if organisations carry on working as they do currently, and services are used and offered as they are today.
We reported in 2017 that the cost of delivering services this year is currently set to be £80 million more than the annual budget we receive.
Progress is being made this year against our financial position and our CCGs this year agreed a full list of opportunities which was developed and submitted to NHS England, with a value of £51m. In July all these schemes were reviewed and have either been confirmed for delivery in 2018/19 with a forecast in-year value of £51m, or for potential delivery in 2019/20.
