Sustainability and Transformation Plan

People living in Barnsley, Bassetlaw, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield are being asked for their views on the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP).

The STP starts by saying there have been some big improvements in health and social care over the last 15 years. For example, people with cancer and heart conditions are experiencing better care and living longer.

However, people’s needs have changed, new treatments are emerging, the quality of care is variable and preventable illness is widespread. There will also be an estimated funding gap of £571 million if services continue to work in the way they are doing now.

Over the last 12 months, all health and care organisations across the region have worked together to develop a vision and a set of priorities to address these challenges and improve the health and wellbeing of their combined population. In partnership with Healthwatch Sheffield and Voluntary Action Sheffield, members of the public are now being asked to get involved.

The South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw plan is made up of five local plans – referred to as ‘place’ plans. Each place plan has been developed by local doctors, hospital chief executives, clinical commissioners, council officers and patient and voluntary sector groups.


The main ambition in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw is...

The main ambition is to give everyone in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw a great start in life, with support to stay healthy and live longer. There are ten draft priorities to help achieve this:

1. Reduce inequalities for all, helping people to live well and stay well for longer

2. Join up health and care services, so they respond better to people’s needs

3. Spend more money on care in communities, focusing on local healthcare centres

4. Treat and care for people’s mental and physical health

5. Make hospital care the same for everyone, everywhere

6. Make urgent and emergency care simpler so that it’s easier for people to get care

7. Develop a workforce in the right place and with the right skills

8. Use technology to support people to be well at home, manage their own care and for staff to be connected better

9. Have health and care services that are funded long term

10. Work with people, staff and communities to make all this happen


Sir Andrew Cash, lead for the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw STP, said:

“This is an important opportunity for everyone in the region, from organisations, staff, patients and members of the public to come together to really make a difference and make sure that our services are continuously improving and meeting the needs of everyone living in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw.”
