Care Pathways. Supporting Providers: STPs and accountable care

According to the National Health Executive a major programme has been launched this week by NHS Providers to put support in place for trusts to move to accountable care structures.

In a letter last week from NHS Providers Chief Exec Chris Hopson and Dame Gill Morgan sent to NHS member chairs, chief executives, finance directors, strategy directors, directors of operations and commercial directors, the pair outlined the reason for the new programme.  “The NHS is changing – from a focus on individual NHS institutions to integrated local health and care systems. NHS trusts and foundation trusts are playing a key, often leading, role through their STPs,
by adopting new care models and by moving to accountable care structures.
In our recent member survey you told us you wanted more support in these areas.”

The letter goes on to detail the assistance NHS Providers is offering to its members over the next six weeks. It states that it is clear that STPs are at very different stages of development and that there is a strong appetite to share learning to best develop STPs and accountable care structures.
