Sustainable Transformation Partnerships and Local Workforce Action Boards

We are delighted to be given this opportunity to engage with you to help shape your system through transformation.


It is recognised that to truly realise the changes required by the NHS to meet the triple aim of the quality, finance & health inequality gap, we need to enable systems to integrate and be more efficient & effective by having “one conversation” in a joined up way.

 

What are STPs?

To help ensure health and care services are built around the needs of people in the region, local providers and commissioners are working together in Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs).

Plans developed by the Partnerships show how local services will evolve and become sustainable over the next five years – ultimately delivering the Five Year Forward View vision of better health, better patient care and improved NHS efficiency. More information about STPs can be found here.

We are working across the Midlands and East supporting the workforce elements of the STPs through Local Workforce Action Boards (LWABs) which will ensure that decisions about the NHS and social care workforce take place in the right place at the right time with the right people.

 

What will LWABs do?

LWABs have two areas of responsibility; supporting STPs across a broad range workforce and HR activity, and the local delivery of the HEE Mandate from the Department of Health and other key workforce priorities in line with national policies. 

Its core functions form the pillars of the HEE offer to STPs and include:

  • Developing a clear understanding of the current and currently foreseeable future workforce – through robust workforce intelligence,
  • a robust workforce strategy,
  • a workforce transformation plan and
  • leadership and OD support to enable staff, patients and carers to confidently and competently lead change across pathways, organisations and systems.

 

LWABs in the Midlands and East

There are 17 LWABs across Midlands and East where we work closely with health and social care providers and commissioners on the workforce elements of the STPs.

Each LWAB is co-chaired by a senior member of Health Education England and a Chief Executive Officer within the STP.  There is a nominated Workforce Lead and we have an identified Locality Partnership Manager working with the STP and LWAB. 

A map of the Midlands and East LWABs is provided below.
