Our plan to improve the health and wellbeing of people living in Birmingham and Solihull

The NHS, Birmingham City Council and Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council have worked together to develop a draft Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP).  The plan sets out how we will improve the health and wellbeing of people living in Birmingham and Solihull.

We want Birmingham and Solihull’s people to:

  • lead fulfilling, healthy, independent lives
  • receive consistently high quality health and care services
  • have early access to extra help when they need it
  • have easy access to support when they can no longer live independently

The plan proposes what we could do to improve and transform our primary care, community, social care, mental health, maternity and wider hospital services.

It also looks at how we can address the significant increase in demand for health and care services at a time when budgets are shrinking.

We’ve submitted our draft plan to NHS England for review. The plan is not final, and we’ll continue to develop it with input from the local community and other stakeholders.

We’ll engage and consult with local people before any decisions are made about changing the way services are provided.
