We provide practical support to sustainability and transformation partnerships (STPs) and integrated care systems (ICSs) at a local level.

We’re committed to supporting the delivery of the Five Year Forward View (5YFV) at a national level. The 5YFV sets a clear vision for health and social care across England to integrate and transform services so they better meet the needs of the people who use them.

More information about STPs and ICSs is available from NHS England.

  • mental health
  • obesity.
