Sir Nicholas Soames: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, when he plans to conclude the Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships process in Surrey and Sussex.

Stephen Barclay, Minister of State for Health: There are no plans in place to conclude the work of the Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) process. The Sussex and East Surrey STP are working towards enabling health and care organisations to work together to improve and join-up services to meet the changing needs of all of the people who live in the area. It is an ongoing partnership and a way of working to make sure that the plans of all the partners across the area are joined up and working together. It aims to ensure that no part of the health and care system operates in isolation.
