Another one bites the dust - Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Sustainability and Transformation Plan published today.
A local Stop STPs campaigner who is SADDER THAN HELL AND NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE says: "My heart sinks. They're looking for a 1.3million SURPLUS!!? How many dead people is that?"
The Chair of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough STP, David Astley, writes
" the interim STP summary published in July ... forecasted that as a system we will have a £250m financial deficit by 2020/21, the STP outlines that this is in addition to £250m of savings and efficiency plans individual Trusts and the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) need to deliver over the same period. This makes a total system-wide financial challenge of £500m over the next four years. It also estimates the need to invest £43m to improve services over these four years which increases the total system-wide financial challenge from £500m to £543m. If the Trusts and CCG meet their savings and efficiency plans, and all aspects of the STP are delivered, this will achieve the savings and efficiency target (of £500m) and produce a small NHS surplus of £1.3m (by 2020/21)."
Letters to David Astley stating outright opposition to his STP are called for. You can find a Letter to the STP BOARD template in our STP FLATPACK - click on the link on right of the page.
