How are we doing?

As a group of partners, we are assessed on how well we are working together to make improvements in health and care.

The first STP Progress Dashboard was published on Friday 21 July and marks us in a number of key areas.

The dashboard, which gives us a rating against 17 indicators plus an overall score, will be updated every year and will allow you to track our performance and progress.

We were rated outstanding by national bodies, NHS England and NHS Improvement.
