Sussex and East Surrey Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) has strengthened its leadership with Bob Alexander now full-time in post since February and Karen Breen, a new programme director in post since April. NHS England is working with both Bob Alexander and Karen Breen to further align support to the STP’s work programmes.

NHS England Director of Commissioning Operations for Kent, Surrey and Sussex (Felicity Cox) and Director of Assurance and Delivery (Pennie Ford) meet regularly with Bob and Karen to review progress and identify any further support needed by the STP.

The initial focus for 2018/19 is on improving system financial and service delivery performance.
