New videos showcase achievements of Staffordshire health commissioning organisations

The six NHS bodies responsible for planning and buying health services in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent have been coming up with new ways to tell you about what has been happening.

Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) have to publish an annual report to tell people about the work that has been undertaken in the last financial year, but these documents are complicated and not very easy to read. So, to make them more accessible and useful, the CCGs have designed a series of animated videos to keep the public informed.

The three videos are a couple of minutes long, covering a range of topics from the local urgent care system, finances and plans for the forthcoming year.  They use colourful animations to illustrate the different talking points.

Marcus Warnes, Accountable Officer and Heather Johnstone, Chief Nurse and Director of Nursing and Quality at the CCGs are featured in their own videos to talk through different aspects of the annual report summary for 2018/19. 

Marcus said: “These videos are a fantastic way to illustrate the CCGs’ annual report summary in an engaging and digestible format. We are proud to have accomplished a lot during 2018/19, and it is important that we showcase it.

“We want everyone in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent to be able to stay up-to-date with the work that we do. By providing this information in a number of different formats, we hope that everyone will be able to learn a bit more about the local health commissioning groups.”

Heather added: “We are very proud of the finished result and encourage everyone to take a look at the videos to see the work we carried out last year and to find out more about our plans for the future.”

These videos are embedded in new interactive PDF documents on each CCG website and were presented at each CCG’s Annual General Meeting over the summer.  The videos will to be used on the CCGs’ social media accounts and websites.

In addition to this, as the CCGs start to hold meetings together, or ‘in common’, there is also a live blog from the Governing Body and Primary Care Commissioning Committees to keep people informed on what is happening.
