Shaping Autism Services in Southern Staffordshire

Parents and carers of children with autism are being asked to help shape the future of local services in southern Staffordshire.

The current contract for Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) services is due to come to an end and to comply with Government regulations around NHS contracts, the Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), who are responsible for buying the service, must award a new contract using a tendering process and invite potential providers to apply.

In order to develop what the new service should look like, the CCGs in Cannock Chase, East Staffordshire, South East Staffordshire and Seisdon Peninsula and Stafford and Surrounds want to engage with parents and carers of children in the area. They want to make sure that patients and their families are receiving the right, high quality services that they need and to learn from their previous experience of current services.

Several engagement sessions are being held in the area to talk to parents and carers about what is important to them from a future service. An online survey has also been developed and you can give your views anonymously by clicking here.

The face to face next events where commissioners will be speaking to patients are being held on Thursday 23 May, from 1.15pm – 3pm at Burntwood Library, Sankeys Corner/Bridge Cross Road, Burntwood, WS7 2BX and on Thursday 20 June, from 6pm – 7.30pm at the Mile Oak Community Centre, Price Avenue, Tamworth, B78 3NL

If there are any other groups who would like to give feedback on autism services, but do not feel they could complete the on-line survey, please contact the CCGs on 01785 854482.

Patient feedback on what is important and what support would help families and their children to live well with autism is key and will make a difference to the future service in southern Staffordshire.

All feedback received will be independently analysed and help to shape a new service specification, which all potential providers will be invited to bid against.
