Notes to editors
This press release and the full report, Sustainability and transformation partnerships in London: An independent review are embargoed until 6.00 on Tuesday 16 October. After this time, the full report will be available here: https://www.kingsfund.org.uk/publications/sustainability-transformation-partnerships-london
The five London STPs are North London Partners in Health and Care (North Central London), East London Health and Care Partnership (North East London), North West London Health and Care Partnership, Our Healthier South East London and South West London Health and Care Partnership.
Research for this report was carried out in two phases between February and August 2018. Phase one involved a small number of interviews with leaders of the five STPs and from NHS England’s and NHS Improvement’s London regional teams, and phase two involved a series of 26 interviews with senior NHS and local government leaders in each STP and with stakeholders working across the wider London system. We also held a roundtable discussion attended by 19 senior leaders from across the London health and care system and a group discussion with 17 representatives from London Healthwatch organisations. This report is based on the interviews undertaken, previous work by The King’s Fund, and our wider understanding of the issues across health and care and the London context.

The King's Fund is an independent charity working to improve health and care in England. We help to shape policy and practice through research and analysis; develop individuals, teams and organisations; promote understanding of the health and social care system; and bring people together to learn, share knowledge and debate. Our vision is that the best possible health and care is available to all.
