Sustainability and transformation plans in the NHS: how are they being developed in practice?
This report argues that STPs offer the best hope to improve health and care services despite having been beset by problems so far. STPs have been strongly criticised by politicians, local authority leaders and patient groups and this report supports many of the criticisms, including patchy involvement of local government, clinicians, frontline staff and patients, and that there is a lack of a governance structure or formal authority for STP leaders. Despite this, the report supports the idea behind STPs and offers suggestions for helping to make them work better. The report is accompanied by a timeline exploring the development of STPs since December 2015.

The tide effect: how the world is changing its mind on cannabis legalisation
The Tide Effect argues that the legalisation of cannabis in the UK is both overdue and imperative. The report from the Adam Smith Institute suggests that current attempts to control consumption through prohibition do not work and have not done so for many decades. A properly regulated market, says the report, would provide tax revenues, ensure that the drug meets acceptable standards, and help protect public health.
