The NHS planning guidance, Delivering the Forward View: NHS planning guidance 2016/17 to 2020/21 asks every health and care system to produce its own sustainability and transformation plan (STP) for October 2016 to March 2021.

Our considerations for determining local health and care economies includes geographical maps and resources to help discussions between clinical commissioning groups, NHS trusts and foundation trusts, local authorities, other key partners and arms’ length bodies when they agree their planning or transformation footprints, which is the first step of creating an STP.

The mapping table is a useful, additional resource that shows how the administrative boundaries of different health bodies and local authorities relate to each other, including the local health and care economies identified based on Monitor’s analysis of funding flows.
