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.

Prioritising Dementia

on .

Dementia is one of the greatest healthcare challenges that the world is facing, with one in three people over the age of 65 developing dementia. 

As a CCG, we are committed to supporting patients and carers with dementia. We recognise that it is essential that we nurture the development of dementia-friendly communities, which recognise and understand dementia; and are able to offer adequate and appropriate services to support patients throughout their dementia journey.

Our dementia pledge is to:

  • Put patients at the centre
  • Ensure continuity of care by building one service for all your care needs
  • Ensure carers are supported throughout their dementia journey
  • Provide care closer to home
  • Work with the voluntary sector and local areas to support patients and carers to engage in their communities in a meaningful way.

Local focus

We are involved with Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Dementia Action Alliance and Cannock Town Dementia Friendly project.

Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (MPFT) have specialist Memory Services which provide cognitive and functional assessments for individuals where there are concerns over memory or where there is an established diagnosis of dementia. They also have a Memory and Dementia leaflet available in a number of alternative languages, which can be viewed and downloaded HERE.

Prioritising Dementia Care: a vision for our community

On 17 March 2015, we held a 'Prioritising Dementia Care' stakeholder event. The event was an opportunity for stakeholders to hear more about the vision for dementia across South Staffordshire and discuss the impact it could have on patients and carers. 

The event included presentations from our CCG and Professor Tony Elliott, Clinical Director of South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.

Keeping a healthy brain

The NHS wants to help keep people healthy. This could lower their chances of getting dementia – symptoms caused by serious brain disease.  Information can be found on the NHS website.

Many people don’t know that what they do every day can help keep a healthy brain. The good news is that it’s never too late to act. An information leaflet, produced in different languages, is available to download offering you tips and advice on keeping healthy. Download the ‘Dementia – keeping your brain healthy’ leaflet from the NHS Health Check website HERE.
