Norfolk’s STP implementation plan revealed

Norfolk County Council’s Health and Wellbeing Board meeting has revealed, for the first time, key elements of its proposed implementation planning priorities for the Norfolk and Waveney sustainability and transformation partnership (STP) plan to committee members and the public.

The STP plan outlines challenges to meeting the goals set out by NHS England’s five priority areas: mental health, cancer, maternity, urgent and emergency care, and primary, prevention and community care.

The full plan, which includes a new eight-bed mental health unit and the implementation of a new business case across 10,000 nursing and residential home beds, is scheduled to be published in two weeks’ time.

The Health and Wellbeing Board, which is aimed at improving the health and wellbeing of people in Norfolk, brings together local organisations in Norfolk and Waveney, including councils, CCGs, Healthwatch Norfolk, the voluntary sector, Norfolk Constabulary, and the Police and Crime Commissioner.

Former health secretary Patricia Hewitt attended the plan’s launch preview, marking her first meeting since her appointment as chair of the STP’s Chairs Oversight Group.

Bill Borrett, chairman of the Health and Wellbeing Board, said: “The Health and Wellbeing Board is held in public which means that anyone is able to observe the meeting, it provides a key opportunity for the public to find out what is going on in health and social care.

“The STP is a partnership approach across all the different bodies delivering health which is going to drive the way that health and social care are delivered for the future and it’s important that residents of Norfolk know what is happening in their communities.”
