Integrated care in England: East Midlands

Devolution

The East Midlands currently has one agreed devolution deal covering Greater Lincolnshire and the area's ten local authorities. The Greater Lincolnshire devolution agreement states that the partners will use their local sustainability and transformation plans to set out their vision for how health and social care services will be integrated.

Sustainability and transformation plans (STPs)

The East Midlands has five STPs covering the recognised sub-regional areas of:

  • Derbyshire
  • Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland
  • Lincolnshire
  • Nottinghamshire
  • Northamptonshire

View a list of all STPs on the NHS England website.
