Sustainability and Transformation Plan

The Humber Coast and Vale Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) is the first stage in a programme of work undertaken since April 2016 by a partnership of local authorities, NHS Commissioners and providers and other community-based organisations.

STPs aim to make practical changes to the way health services are delivered for people and communities. The vision is for everyone in the Humber Coast and Vale to start well, live well and age well. To do that, everyone must be supported to better manage their own care, reduce dependence on hospitals and use resources more efficiently so that we will all be able to have reliable access to good, safe services into the future.

For more information on the plan and to find out how you can have your say, visit Vale of York CCG website or e-mail

Better Care Fund (BCF)

The Better Care Fund (BCF) was introduced as a tool to encourage and speed up the integration of health and social care, and prompt local authorities and Clinical Commissioning Groups to develop transformational projects through the use of pooled budgets and integrated spending plans. Health and Wellbeing Boards are responsible for signing off BCF Plans.
