Replacement of Direct Commissioning Offices with Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships

Within the ODS products, the Higher Level Heath Authorities currently reflect the NHS England Region Local Offices, also known as Direct Commissioning Offices (DCO).


From 1 April, NHS England replaced the DCO tier of the hierarchy with Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STP). This change is not currently reflected in the ODS reference tables.


The ODS team will work to implement the new hierarchy structure to remove DCO and replace with STP for April 2020.
