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.

Minor Injuries Unit Consultation

on .

Our six week consultation on the proposals to reduce the hours of the Minor Injuries Units in Tamworth and Lichfield is now closed. The consultation ran from 22 September - 6 November 2015.

On 25 November 2015, our Governing Body approved plans to change the opening hours at the two Minor Injuries Units (MIUs) in Tamworth and Lichfield during their quietest periods.

Opening hours at the MIU at Sir Robert Peel Hospital in Tamworth will be changed to 8am to 10pm, and at Samuel Johnson Hospital in Lichfield to 8am to 9pm, effective from 1 April 2016. Both are currently open 24 hours a day.

As part of the proposals, there will be the presence of an out-of-hours doctor in Tamworth during the night, as part of a detailed implementation plan.

There will also be local campaigns to increase patients’ awareness of the wider services available for urgent healthcare needs, at all times of the day, so that they choose the most appropriate service for their particular need and that more are seen in the right place, first time.

During the consultation we wanted to engage with as many stakeholders, patients and members of the public as possible. People were invited to share their views in a number of ways, including completing surveys either hard copy or online; attending a face to face drop in session, held in both Tamworth and Lichfield on four different dates; or sending their thoughts by letter or email.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the consultation.
