The Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership - formerly the NHS Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP)

The Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership has set out how the health and care system can remain fit for the future and respond successfully to the growing demands that are being placed on it, alongside ambitious ideas to improve the health of people living and working in the region.

The Partnership has set out a shared core purpose to ensure that the people of Merseyside and Cheshire become healthier than they are now and can continue to have access to safe, good quality and sustainable services.

The area covered by the Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership is the second largest in England. It covers 12 Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), 20 providers and nine local authorities, including Cheshire East Council. The plan represents the thoughts and ambitions of more than 30 different organisations serving a population of over 2.5 million people.
