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.

Palliative Care Medication Service

on .

The Palliative Care Medication Service has recently been launched in South Staffordshire. This service has been running in North Staffordshire for some time and provides vital, timely access to palliative care medication through community pharmacies.

The aim of the service is to allow rapid access to medicines commonly prescribed in palliative (or ‘End of Life’) care, to enable a greater percentage of patients to die in their own home, if they wish to.

The service works by establishing a network of pharmacies that will routinely hold stock of the main Pallitative Care medicine, so carers and other health care professionals should not experience delays in obtaining these medicines for the patients they care for.

There are a number of pharmacies across South Staffordshire who will now stock these palliative care medications at all times:

  • Diamorphine 5mg ampoules
  • Hyoscine butylbromide 20mg/mL ampoules
  • Haloperidol 5mg/mL ampoules
  • Midazolam 10mg/2mL ampoules
  • Cyclizine 50mg/1mL ampoules
  • Oxycodone 10mg/1mL ampoules
  • Water for injection 5mL ampoules

A list of the local pharmacies commissioned to provide the service is listed below. Please call the pharamcy first to confirm stocks are available.

Please note the supply of palliative care medicines is not limited to these pharmacies.
