Every year, hundreds of thousands of people see their GP and tens of thousands are hospitalised because of flu.

Your Local NHS Needs You

on .

In March this year we worked with patients, the public and the community and voluntary sector to look at how we can better involve them in making decisions about local health services. We heard some really good examples of engagement and involvement and how these had made a difference.

We now want to take that conversation a step further and work with a wide range of representatives to co-produce how the NHS locally involves and engages with the wider population.

Practise safe sex during Freshers’ Week

on .

With students all over the country starting university, and many enjoying their new-found freedom during Freshers’ Week, local doctors are urging students to practise safe sex by taking care to use a condom or a dental dam.

Doctors at Cannock Chase Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), South East Staffordshire and Seisdon Peninsula CCG and Stafford and Surrounds CCG are advising students to be aware of the risks associated with sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and how to avoid them. In 2015, there were more than 435,000 STI diagnoses in England and there is still a great deal of confusion about how people can catch STIs.
