A plan for the future of local health services.
Plans for health services to work together in local 'footprints' are being developed across England.
Milton Keynes is working with Bedfordshire, Bedford Borough and Luton to develop a plan that will set out how local services will evolve to become sustainable over the next five years (click link below for map of the area).
The aim is for health and care services within the NHS can work more closely together to provide affordable, high quality services for local communities.
Originally called the Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (BLMK STP), our area was named as one of eight Accountable Care Systems in June 2017 (read more). These have since been renamed Integrated Care Systems or Partnerships. Read more about work underway in these systems in the King's Fund article below.
