Analysis by HSJ reveals which health regions gained the most from the first year of the £1.8bn “sustainability and transformation fund”.

Analysis of NHS trusts’ financial data by HSJ shows how the £1.8bn “sustainability” share of the “sustainability and transformation fund” was distributed in 2016-17, revealing wide disparities between the payments made to individual organsiations.

This interactive map measures the distance between trusts’ STF allocations and their actual receipts, as a proportion of turnover.

It aggregates the figures to regional level, by combining the STF payments for organisations within each “sustainability and transformation partnership”.

Areas in blue have received more STF than they were originally allocated, while those in red have received less.

Surrey Heartlands and Greater Manchester were the main net beneficiaries, while Sussex and East Surrey and Norfolk and Waveney had the biggest STF shortfalls.
