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.

GP Out of Hours and NHS 111

on .

If you need urgent medical support when your GP practice is closed – do you know where to go?


The six Clinical Commissioning Groups in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent are looking at the current GP Out of Hours and NHS 111 services. This fits into the plans set out in the NHS 5 Year Forward View to have a fully functional integrated service for urgent care, which features a new clinical advice function. This means bringing together NHS 111 call-handling functions with former GP Out of Hours (GP OOH) services to deliver integrated 24/7 urgent care access, clinical advice and treatment service.  This is the starting point to revolutionise the way in which urgent care services are provided and accessed.

Your views will help us understand what’s working well with the current service and how it could be further improved. The online patient survey was available up until 28 July 2019 and the results were then collated and analysed.

By evaluating the results of participation through public and patient involvement, the CCG can learn lessons for the future and continuously improve performance. In the pdf summary of findings document (907 KB) you can review this project to understand more about what patients said, and what we did as a result of that feedback.
