Click here to read the Sussex and East Surrey Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP). Published 25 November 2016.
This plan has been developed by 23 health and social care organisations, serving 1.7 million people, the place is one of 44 STPs which set out how services need to change to meet the needs of our populations.
The Sussex and East Surrey STP has three 'place-based' areas defined around local communities. East Sussex Better Together (ESBT) is one of these areas.
ESBT is our locally-developed and locally-owned 150 week programme to transform health and social care services. It is our major contribution to the STP.
The programme started in August 2014 and is led by Eastbourne, Hailsham and Seaford and Hastings and Rother Clinical Commissioning Groups, East Sussex County Council, East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust and Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.
We are working together to use our combined £850million annual budget to achieve the best possible services and outcomes for local people. Our shared ambition is to have a fully integrated health and social care system by 2018.
ESBT complements and contributes to the aims of the wider STP, helping to identify ways in which health and social care providers can work more effectively together to deliver services people need.
We will continue to engage our partners and local people in shaping services to help people to live independently and stay healthy for as long as possible, and making sure our hospital care and specialist services are safe and of high quality.

Local Digital Roadmap
To support the Sussex and East Surrey Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) it is vital that we look at how we can become more digital across organisations.
This document summarises our work to date to deliver digital enablement to the STP for Sussex and East Surrey through the delivery of digital technologies. It builds on our local digital roadmap (LDR) submissions to NHS England in June and October 2016.
The LDR sets out how we will develop paperless working for the NHS and social care across Sussex and East Surrey by 2020. It also describes how it will enable the development of additional services through the use of digital technologies.
