Urgent and Emergency Care

Posted in News, events and updates.

The main purpose of the Sustainability & Transformation Plan (STP) is to improve everyone’s experience of access and care across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent. It will do this by basing all of its proposals on working in natural communities across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent with populations of 30-70,000 people.

STP Transformational Goals

Dr Bill Gowans, Medical Director for the Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent STP

“The vision for the Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) is one of helping people to stay well, and to receive the majority of the care they need closer to home. This involves looking at how we can get the right services out into the community and help people live healthier lives. If we can get that right, then a trip to A&E should go back to being for accidents and emergencies only, rather than what it has slowly become, which is the default option for urgent care.
