North Central London Sustainability and Transformation Plan (NCL STP)

North London partners is now online at Here you'll find information, news and views about how we are working together to deliver better health and care in North London. You can also follow us on twitter @nclstp.

The Plan and its development

The draft North Central London Sustainability and Transformation Plan was originally submitted in October 2016. In February this year we published a refreshed version to reflect the work that had taken place since the original submission. We made a commitment to provide a further, updated version in April 2017 to reflect further work on the implementation priorities and an update of the financial analysis underpinning the plan.

The updated plan includes a change in name to North London, partners in health & care to reflect the partnership of health and care organisations working together to deliver our plan and the community they serve. Our commitment to the people of North London is that we will work together along with the voluntary sector, and our residents, to improve the health and wellbeing of the community. 

The draft plan will be discussed in the public board and governing body meetings of the organisations within the partnership after the general election on 8 June 2017. 

The original draft plan was a technical document and it continues to be so in this update. This revised version includes more detail of the delivery plans and an updated financial analysis as well as our communications and engagement approach going forward. 

A revised public summary of the plan, written in plain English, will be published after 8 June 2017. It will be available on this and other partner organisation websites. This ‘reader friendly’ document is intended to help inform our community, encourage and support public engagement, and invite feedback. 

Case for Change

Our plan is based on the Case for Change, developed by the North London Health and Care Cabinet. This cabinet represents the best clinical expertise from a range of health and care professionals. North London partners in health & care is a work in progress and we are keen to give local people, patients, and staff the opportunity to have their say and participate as we begin to implement our proposals.

We welcome comments on the draft STP. Please send comments to or

October 2016 joint statement by leaders of Haringey and Islington councils

Joint statement from Councillor Claire Kober, Leader of Haringey Council and Chair of Haringey Health and Wellbeing Board and Councillor Richard Watts, Leader of Islington Council and Chair of Islington Health and Wellbeing Board.

"The NHS in the north central London area – which represents Camden, Haringey, Islington, Barnet and Enfield – has submitted a draft Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) to NHS England.

"The draft plan is a requirement of the NHS Five Year Forward View, and sets out emerging thinking about ways NHS and social care services could be delivered in the future to make them more effective and efficient.

"Borough councils see first-hand the impact of the profound health inequalities that exist in the north central London area.

"At this stage, there has not yet been political oversight or public or patient engagement with the draft plan, and it is now time to gather more opinion on the proposals being put forward.

"We want to use out roles to influence the plan to improve services for the health and wellbeing of our residents. We are also keen to continue to work with the NHS to strengthen the focus on adult social care in the draft plan as it develops.

"We therefore want to gather views on the draft plan before it is considered at our joint meetings of the Haringey and Islington Health and Wellbeing Boards. The joint meeting of the Boards brings together the local authorities, GPs, local NHS trusts, Healthwatch and voluntary sector partners in both boroughs in support of our ambitious Wellbeing Partnership, focussed on improving health and social care outcomes and reducing health inequalities for local people."
