Supporting providers: STPs and accountable care | NHS Providers
NHS Providers are working to develop a programme of support that helps provider organisations adapt to the challenges and opportunities presented by the move to accountable care.
The programme, Supporting Providers: STPs and accountable care, will be developed in close collaboration with NHS trusts over the next six weeks. The programme aims to ensure there is the right support and a strong advocate making the case for NHS trusts as they move to accountable care structures that deliver more integrated care for the public.
Elements to support trusts will include:
- Developing new and effective relationships with local authorities, primary care and commissioners
- Responding to specific challenges such as moving care closer to home, prioritising mental health, workforce strategy and getting the most out of the NHS estate
- Exploring new ways to support change, identifying “enablers” including new approaches to contracting, different financial flows, adopting risk stratification and whole population health management approaches, and developing STP level governance arrangements.
