The Devon Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) is a collaboration of key NHS, Local Authority and other sectors that is working towards improving the health and care services in the county. The STP area includes Devon, Plymouth and Torbay.
The STP has several priority areas that will help achieve its aims.
Embedding a MECC approach across the STP area is one of the projects that supports the ‘prevention and promoting health’ priority, as well as other priorities of the STP.
More information about the Devon STP can be found at http://www.devonstp.org.uk/
In addition to MECC being an identified STP priority, the approach is also supported by Health Education England South West. HEE South West ensures that health care workforces develop the right skills, values and behaviours to provide excellent care.
MECC is being implemented using a cascade model of training across Devon, Plymouth and Torbay.
