Notice of CCG closure

From 1 July 2022 please visit our new ICB website https://staffsstoke.icb.nhs.uk/

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.

Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) services

on .

December 2017 to January 2018: The ENT survey was to support the development of a full community ENT service in the SESSP CCG area. This is already in place for Cannock Chase and Stafford & Surrounds CCGs so we were looking to capture the experiences of service users in both secondary care and the community. Response to the survey was poor highlighting the need to engage with service users via an alternative method to obtain the level of feedback required. Lessons learned from this survey will be applied going forward.

Following discussions at the locality boards they did not support the development of a full community ENT service, however it was noted that a lot of the referrals that are made to ENT are mainly for micro-suction procedures. Options will be reviewed for the development of a standalone micro suction clinic to be provided at a location within the Seisdon boundaries.
