Birmingham and Solihull Sustainability and Transformation Plan

Solihull Council is part of Live Healthy, Live Happy, a Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) with Birmingham City Council and local NHS organisations.

The Partnership’s vision is to help everyone in Solihull and Birmingham live the healthiest and happiest lives possible.

  • we want every citizen to be born well, grow well, live well, age well and die well
  • we will help people to help themselves to live long, happy and independent lives
  • we will tackle inequality, ensuring that every patient and citizen gets the same service and quality of care regardless of where they live
  • we will think people first not organisations, ensuring easy access to and navigation through and between services

To make this vision a reality, all NHS organisations and the two local councils, working alongside voluntary services, will work together on one agreed set of priorities.

In 2016 we developed a draft plan which set out initial thoughts on how we would improve the health and wellbeing of people living in Solihull and Birmingham.

The plan looked at what we could do to improve and transform our primary care, community, social care, mental health, maternity and wider hospital services.

It also considered how we could address the increasing demand for health and care services at a time when budgets are shrinking.

The draft plan was submitted NHS England for review. With significant national and local changes having taken place, we are now updating the plan. If you would like to view a copy of the existing plan please contact us at

In Solihull we have already started to develop an innovative and effective local health and care system, through Solihull Together. This will help us to deliver the ambitions of the Live Healthy, Live Happy (STP) plan.

Please note: The current Live Healthy, Live Happy (STP) plan is being updated

When the new plan is published, we will be running events with colleagues in the NHS and Birmingham City Council to share information and give you a chance to have your say. In the meantime, you can get in touch with us at:
