The West, North and East Cumbria Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) covers Carlisle, Allerdale, Copeland and Eden - a population of around 330,000.

Partnerships between the providers and the commissioners of health and social care with the community, aim to integrate services to deliver a better experience for patients, staff and communities.

STPs are outlined in theFive Year Forward View| for the NHS. Plans here have been developed by the local health and care system and set out a longer term and broader ambition for improved health and well-being, as well as for health and care services locally. 

Our West, North and East Cumbria Health and Social Care Partnership aims to:

1) Prevent illness and empower people to support their own health and well-being.
2) Strengthen and invest in local primary care, social care and community care.
3) Deliver sustainable hospital services and develop improved physical and mental health services closer to home and in hospital when needed.

Here is the plan published in November 2016:
The STP for the south of the county has been developed by Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria.
