STP Development

NHS England expect all STPs to have adopted value-based decision making processes based on the BPV toolkit, embedded from April 2017. (para. 49, NHS Operational Planning and Contracting Guidance 2017-19).

The example BPV Decision Framework for an allocation decision is available to download below and should be adapted for local use to support and assure all key decisions and in the development of Sustainability and Transformation Plans:

The learning section of this website will help you to use and effectively apply the BPV Decision Framework in your organisation. Need more support? Send an expression of interest to us (see above).


Value in the Planning Guidance

Improving value in the NHS is at the heart of the Five Year Forward View. Over the course of this year NHS England has used the Best Possible Value (BPV) method to make investment decisions for year two of vanguard funding and for transformation funding for mental health, cancer and learning disabilities and diabetes.

Find out more about how NHS England have applied the BPV Value and Options Frameworks as part of the STP tranformation fund:
