Refresh of our STP health and care plan

Plans drawn up by Derbyshire’s health and care organisations are being revisited in summer 2019, to take account of new national NHS priorities and local health needs. The Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships, known as ‘STPs’, were originally devised in 2016 with the aim of aligning plans for the NHS and local authority adult and children’s care services to ensure better experience of care, better health and better value for money. Identifying a number of priorities to meet the changing needs of local people, and challenges facing public services, the plans are to be reviewed to make sure they are still looking at the right areas of care, and to take account of the priorities listed in NHS Long Term Plan, which was published by NHS England in January 2019. See our news page for more information.

Our plan for 2019-20

Joined Up Care Derbyshire has produced an operating plan for 2019-20, which sets out the priorities for the next 12 months. It also serves as the foundation for the re-fresh of the over-arching five-year STP plan, due later in 2019.

Our clinical strategy

Joined Up Care Derbyshire Clinical Professional Reference Group, which brings together clinical leaders from across Derbyshire, has agreed a set of care principles and standards designed to support delivery of our vision to keep people:

  • Safe and healthy – free from crisis and preventing ill health wherever possible 
  • At home – out of social and healthcare beds 
  • Independent – managing with minimal support, avoiding institutional care where appropriate.
