Notice of CCG closure

From 1 July 2022 please visit our new ICB website

On 1 July 2022, the six Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent closed down and the functions of the CCGs transferred to a new NHS organisation, known as an integrated care board. The new organisation is responsible for NHS spend and the day-to-day running of the NHS in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.

Therefore, South East Staffordshire and Seisdon Peninsula Clinical Commissioning Group no longer exists and the responsibilities of the CCG, along with the other CCGs in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent, have transferred to the new NHS Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Integrated Care Board (ICB).

These changes have taken place under the new Health and Care Act 2022, which amongst other things aims to tackle health inequalities and create safer, more joined-up services that will put the health and care system on a more sustainable footing. There are no changes to how local residents access NHS frontline services in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent as part of these changes.

From 1 July 2022 if you visit this website, you will be re-directed to the new ICB website.

CCGs receive recognition for support to armed forces

on .


The Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent CCGs have been recognised for their commitment to support veterans, serving members of the armed forces and their families.

The six CCGs have all been awarded the pdf bronze award (174 KB) from the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS).

It comes at a time when the military has been supporting the NHS in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent in the fight against coronavirus, providing logistic aid, contributing to the establishment of local testing centres and staffing mobile testing centres.

The CCGs signed the Armed Forces Covenant in June 2019. It means they are committed to ensuring no member of the armed forces community should face disadvantage in the provision of services compared to any other citizen and that in some circumstances special treatment may be appropriate especially for the injured or bereaved.

Marcus Warnes, Accountable Officer for the CCGs said: “We are honoured for the recognition we have received as organisations dedicated to those who have served and are serving. It’s especially poignant at a time when our forces are providing magnificent support to the NHS right here is Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.

“We ask our armed forces to do a difficult, demanding and often dangerous job. In return it is only right that we give as much support as possible to those who have suffered injuries or have ongoing difficulties with mental health.

“Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent have always had strong ties with the military, and we are home to the Defence Medical Academy at Whittington.”

The CCGs are also committed to supporting the employment of veterans and giving their backing to employees who choose to be members of the reserves.
