The Care Provider Alliance is calling on adult social care providers, from small local services to large national organisations, to share their experience of and views about engagement with Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs).
STPs bring together health and care services in a particular area. Their aim is to improve health and care in practical ways through local collaboration. The Care Provider Alliance fully supports this aim. However, we believe that it will only be achieved if there is full engagement between STPs and adult social care providers. This short survey has been designed to find out how much engagement there has been so far, and to enable the views of adult social care providers to inform policy development in this critical area.
Responses are anonymous. They will be analysed and collated by independent consultants working on behalf of the CPA. Details will be reported to the 11 national associations that make up the CPA, and a summary will be published later in the year. We will not publish comments in a way that could lead to the person or organisation who made them being identified.
Some STPs have evolved to become Integrated Care System (ICSs), which have more freedom to manage money and make other decisions locally. To keep things simple, in this survey, when we say STPs we are meaning ICSs as well – and also the devolution sites of Greater Manchester and Surrey.
If you have any questions, or if you would like to make attributable comments, please do not hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org. In the meantime, thank you very much for your help!
The deadline for completion of the survey is 17.30 Friday 1st June 2018.
