Book now – training sessions for type 2 diabetes patients in Staffordshire

Five clinical commissioning groups* (CCGs) in Staffordshire have come together with Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Partnership NHS Trust (SSOTP) to organise a number of free education sessions for newly-diagnosed or existing patients in the area who have type 2 diabetes. 

The ‘My Diabetes’ sessions will help patients to better manage their condition and understand the implications to their lifestyles. It will also include more information about a further educational course, called DESMOND, which offers support in managing their diet, foot care, eye care and much more. 

Medicine waste campaign launches across Staffordshire

A new campaign aimed at saving the NHS millions of pounds across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent is being launched this week. 

The ‘Medicines Matter’ campaign launched by healthcare commissioners from the six Staffordshire and Stoke-on Trent Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), will tackle the issue of unused prescription medicine which is estimated to waste around £6million each year across the county. 

Proposal to provide fair support to families with children allergic to cow's milk protein

Health leaders across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent want to hear views on proposals that will affect families with babies who are not breastfed but have cow’s milk protein allergy (CMPA).

Currently the NHS across the county spends around £1million per year on prescriptions for infant formula milk that does not contain cow’s milk protein. This currently benefits around 1,000 infants with the allergy whose families cannot or choose not to breastfeed. It means that parents and carers of those infants pay nothing for these alternative products but are eligible to claim them via free prescriptions.

New GP lead looks to closer working with a strong local voice

A Lichfield GP has become the new leader of NHS commissioners serving Lichfield, Tamworth, Burntwood and Seisdon Peninsula.

Dr Shammy Noor has taken on the role as the Chair of South East Staffordshire and Seisdon Peninsula CCG following the retirement of Dr John James in December.

The change takes place as Staffordshire’s six* CCGs are beginning to work more closely together with a joint leadership team while still retaining their own identities to allow key decision to be taken locally.
