orking in partnership with the Bedfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group, Healthwatch Central Bedfordshire, are hosting an event to invite feedback from key stakeholders, service users and the public on the Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STP's). 
Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STP's) have been developed across the country to look at how NHS Health and Social Care services can work more closely together to provide affordable, high quality services for their local communities.
The recently published BLMK STP Public Summary document (attached) sets out the vision for future health and social care in BLMK and outlines ideas for responding to the challenges ahead. The Summary also sets out a commitment to involve everyone with an interest in health and social care services, including those who use them and those who work within them, to further develop plans and proposals for the future of local services.
To learn more about the draft plan for Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes and share your views please join us at the following event - 'What is an STP and what does it mean for me?
