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.

Trauma, Orthopedics and Gynaecology

on .

University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (UHB) have been undertaking an engagement exercise on proposed changes to some of the adult services across Solihull, Good Hope and Heartlands hospitals. This is in order to improve outcomes and reduce waiting times for patients, including residents in Tamworth and Lichfield. The specific services that the Trust are looking to make changes to are Trauma and Orthopedics and Gynaecology services.

As part of this six-week joint exercise which took place in July 2019, UHB engaged with multiple stakeholders with the use of an engagement survey and drop in sessions across the area, including those living in South Staffordshire and who access the services.

The final analysis report from the engagement process, independently produced by CSK Strategies Ltd., is available to download from the UHB website along with an equality analysis of the proposed plans and a 'You Said, We Did' table of actions.
