To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what costs have been (a) incurred to date and (b) committed for the development and management of the sustainability and transformation plan process for Cheshire and Merseyside.
11 January 2017
Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STP) have been developed by local areas. In Cheshire and Merseyside this includes 12 clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), 20 National Health Service provider trusts and Cheshire and Merseyside local authorities. These partners are contributing from their own staff resources to support the multiple programmes and work streams set out in the plan, and staff are working on the STP in addition to their other management roles. As a result, we do not hold the total cost of developing the STP.
