To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, with reference to paragraph 5.5 of the Government Response to the Naylor Review, published in January 2018, what the timetable is for the prioritised capital investment plans covering whole sustainability and transformation partnerships footprints to be (a) completed and (b) published.
Working with Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs) to refine their estates and capital plans is a priority for the new Strategic Estates Planning team. The Government response to the Naylor review was clear that STPs cannot expect to receive additional Government capital funding until they have developed robust and ambitious capital and estates plans, which support their clinical strategies.
As STPs are at different stages in this process we have not set a specific date for these plans to be completed.
The publication of these plans is a matter for STPs which are subject to requirements to consult on changes to clinical services.
