Our structure

Posted in About us

Five clusters of activity have been identified within the Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin STP. A number of programmes sit within them, many of which cut across multiple clusters.

The clusters cover a broad range of themes, including how we improve the health and wellbeing of local residents by encouraging healthy behaviours; plans to strengthen primary care and community services; prevention and primary care; delivery of world class mental health services; urgent and emergency care and to integrate NHS and social care services more closely around the needs of local people.
