Sustainability and Transformation Plans NHS - Keeping patients at the heart of NHS changes


I agree that draft STPs should be made public and consulted upon before being finalised.  Below is a copy of my letter to the NHS in this regard. 

Naturally I shall be in the Commons during the Opposition Day debate on Wednesday 7 September to support the motion – after all, I am an opposition MP, and the debate will be on a motion proposed by the Official Opposition! 
Our motion reads:
“That this House notes with concern that NHS Sustainability and Transformation Plans are expected to lead to significant cuts or changes to frontline services; believes that the process agreed by the Government in December 2015 lacks transparency and the timeline announced by NHS England is insufficient to finalise such a major restructure of the NHS; further believes that the timetable does not allow for adequate public or Parliamentary engagement in the formulation of the plans; and calls on the Government to publish the Plans and to provide an adequate consultation period for the public and practitioners to respond.”
