Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin STP brings together NHS providers, commissioners, general practitioners and local authorities to work in partnership to improve health outcomes and increase collaboration. The STP has been created to allow health and care organisations to work more closely together to improve outcomes and care for local people, reduce pressures on services and make best use of our financial resources.
It sets out ambitious plans for transformed neighbourhood services; safe and effective hospital care; ways in which new technology can be harnessed; and how gaps in the workforce can be filled and financial resources better spent.
