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.

Flash Glucose Monitoring and Continuous Glucose Monitoring

on .

The Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent CCGs have a process for prioritising the use of the resources available to commission healthcare across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.

Flash glucose monitoring (FGM) and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is currently commissioned against eligibility criteria within our area.

We are aware of the updated National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommendations in their diabetes guidance and the CCG will consider this as part of the clinical prioritisation process during 2022/23.

Please note, NICE guidelines are not statutory and the CCGs must develop local policies to ensure we operate within our defined budget and achieve financial balance. In addition, the CCGs consider a range of interventions across the whole health economy and therefore this process does not guarantee any changes to the current commissioning policies.

We would politely ask our patients to please bear with us whilst we complete this process.

Further information will be released when available in due course.
