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.

Shaping Autism Services in Southern Staffordshire

on .

The current contract for Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) services in southern Staffordshire is due to come to an end. In order to comply with the law around NHS contracts, the CCGs in the area must award a new contract to provide the service and invite potential providers to apply.

The CCGs in Cannock Chase, East Staffordshire, South East Staffordshire and Seisdon Peninsula and Stafford and Surrounds engaged with the public to shape the future service. This was ensure that with the new contract patients and their families receive the right, high quality services that they need and to learn from your experience of the current services.

The feedback on what is important to you and what support would help you and your child to live well with autism is key and will make a difference to the future service in southern Staffordshire. The online survey was available to the public up until Sunday 30 June and we also held a series of listening events to hear from users of existing services, including engagement events in Rugeley, Stafford, Perton, Tamworth, Burton and Uttoxeter.

The feedback from these events and the online survey is currently being collated and documented in order to build a picture of what the future services should look like for those patients who access the Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) services in southern Staffordshire.

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 (827 KB) you can review this project to understand more about what patients said, and the pdf You Said We Did document (103 KB) summarises what we did as a result of that feedback.

If you think that we could have done better with this engagement activity, then please email your suggestions for improvements to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Commissioners awarded the contract to the Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust following the procurement process, which was carried out in line with Government regulations around NHS contracts and shaped by involvement and engagement with service users and their families.
