Healthcare Review in discussions to ensure alignment with local Sustainability Transformation Plan

06 July 2016


Given the importance of aligning plans for the future of local healthcare, discussions are now underway to ensure the direction of travel for the Bedfordshire and Milton Keynes Healthcare Review is consistent with the developing Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) for Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes.

It is expected that discussions between the Healthcare Review, NHS England and STP partners will continue throughout the Summer. While these discussions take place, the recommendations published by the Healthcare Review on 8 June that were due to be considered by the Programme’s Joint Committee have been put on hold.

Bedfordshire and Milton Keynes CCGs both recognise that the uncertainty surrounding the Review is unsettling for local people, patients and hospital staff and remain fully committed to working closely with NHS England and STP partners to provide clarity on timescales and next steps as soon as possible.

The Healthcare Review is a joint programme being led by Bedfordshire CCG and Milton Keynes CCG, working closely with Bedford and Milton Keynes hospitals and with oversight from national healthcare bodies.
