Podcast: What do STPs mean for general practice in England?

Sustainability and transformation plans (STPs) being drawn up across England are set to reshape the NHS over the coming years. In this podcast, GPonline speaks to five GPs about what the process means for general practice.

Each of 44 STP areas - or 'footprints' - across England will define plans to improve health and wellbeing, improve service quality and deliver financial stability and balance.

Listen to the GPonline podcast below to hear from GPs with different perspectives - those involved in building the plans at CCG boardroom level, campaigners and others - to find out what STPs could mean for UK GP services and the wider NHS.
