Healthcare Review work to be continued within Sustainability and Transformation Plan process

It has been agreed by the clinical commissioning groups for Bedfordshire and Milton Keynes and NHS England that the Healthcare Review is to be progressed as an integral part of the Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) process for Bedfordshire, Milton Keynes and Luton.

As the Healthcare Review and the STP process are both aiming to deliver high quality local healthcare services that are financially viable and fit for the future, it has been decided that is makes sense for the work to continue as a single programme.

Considerable progress has been made by the Healthcare Review in identifying potential service change options to address the identified challenges for healthcare in Bedfordshire and Milton Keynes. This work will be carried over to the STP process, where work will continue and potential options will be checked against the wider opportunities offered through extended working with Luton.
