Unpublished STP plans predict three-year falls in emergency admissions


What are STP footprints expected to achieve in terms of reduced A&E demand?

Officials are calling for numbers of emergency admissions to hospital to fall for three years in a row if sustainability and transformation (STP) footprints are to operate on budget, it has been claimed.

The reductions have been revealed by a Health Service Journal (HSJ) analysis of a sample of 11 unpublished finance, workforce and efficiency plans for the 44 STP footprints.

The publication's editors describe the reductions as being in 'stark contrast' to rising trends seen in recent years.

The areas covered by the 11 finance, workforce and efficiency plans have not been revealed by the journal.

  • Analysis of the STP plans also confirm that the fastest increases in funding are to be in community and primary care. Mental health and general acute spending are expected to do less well.
