Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) - Wider Devon

Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs) are five-year strategic plans covering all aspects of NHS spending in England. The scope of STPs is broad and covers:

  • improving quality and developing new models of care

Torbay is a part of the Wider Devon STP. The Wider Devon STP, includes three local authorities (Torbay; Devon; Plymouth) and two clinical commissioning group areas (South Devon & Torbay; Northern, Eastern and Western Devon).
