About us

Pin It

Together We’re Better is the Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) for Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.

We are a partnership of NHS and local government organisations, alongside independent and voluntary sector groups, that is working together to transform local health and care services.

Through a number of programmes, we are developing new models of care to deliver our vision. Each programme is focussed on its own aims and objectives to ensure local people have access to high quality, sustainable services for the future.

Our vision

“Working with you to make Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent the healthiest places to live and work”

What we’re about

  • People living well for longer
  • Treating people and not a set of conditions
  • Supporting and enabling people to stay well and independent so we can be there when they need us
  • Care being delivered closer to a person’s home
  • Giving mental health equal priority to physical health
  • Ensuring a person’s experience of health and care is the best it can be
