Recruitment of staff and remuneration, including in leadership roles, is a decision for individual Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) areas and will vary based on local need. The selection criteria and composition of interview panels is also a matter for STP areas.

All appointments must use a fair process, and leadership appointments are subject to ratification by NHS England and NHS Improvement in line with the national role specification. NHS England will provide funding to cover the costs of the STP leader for at least two days a week pro rata.
