Sustainability and transformation

We provide practical tools and resources to support sustainability and transformation at a local level.

We're committed to supporting the priorities identified in the NHS Long Term Plan and Public Health England Strategy 2020 to 2025.

These strategies set out:

  • a clear vision for health, public health and social care across England
  • ways to integrate and transform services, so they better meet the needs of users.

Visit NHS England for more information about integrated care and local partnerships.
