The Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Sustainability and Transformation Plan and supporting documents.
Sustainability and Transformation Plan
Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire working together
In common with health and care organisations throughout England, we have been working with our partners across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire to develop a Sustainability and Transformation Plan.
Once completed the plan will set out how health and care services will work in partnership to develop plans that will enable us to continue to meet the health needs of our local population at a time of increasing demand and constrained resources.
This Sustainability and Transformation Plan Summary describes how we propose to organise and deliver services in a different way to meet the needs of the population across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.
If you would like to send us any comments on this summary, or be notified of opportunities to get involved please fill out our feedback form on the STP.
You can read the full STP submissions which were made to NHS England in June and October 2016 in our library.

How can I get involved?
We are inviting you to get involved in the ongoing development of the Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Sustainability and Transformation Plan.
The publication of the draft STP is your chance to get involved at this early stage. Your feedback is important.
We don’t yet have all the answers but this is the start of a conversation to develop the plan with your input.

Statement on Guardian’s report
On 18 November 2016 the Guardian stated 30% of hospital beds would be cut in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire. We can confirm this is factually incorrect.
There are no plans to reduce the number of hospital beds. The ambition stated in the STP is for an overall 30% reduction in A&E admissions and attendances by year 3 for patients with certain long term conditions, patients from care homes and patients at the end of life.
