To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, pursuant to the Answer of 14 May 2018 to Question 142304 on Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships: South East, what sanctions are available to him for late delivery in the Sustainability and Transformation Partnership.
17 May 2018
The Secretary of State for Health and Social Care does not have sanctions available for the late delivery of sustainability and transformation partnership (STPs).
Local health and care organisations remain accountable for their individual organisational plans, which forms part of their STP.
It is important that local people, local organisations, and the STP themselves, can see how their local footprint is performing comparatively in delivering transformation and improving patient care. That is why we have published an STP Dashboard that makes this assessment.
The Dashboard will further accountability, and can be used as a mechanism to drive improvement. NHS England intends to update the dashboard annually to enable progress to be tracked. The dashboard is available at the following link:
