Make your views heard on the future of health and care locally

The Together We’re Better partnership is launching a 12-week public and workforce conversation across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent to listen and understand what is important to you about health and care locally, what works well and what you think should be improved.

As a partner in Together We’re Better, we are working alongside NHS organisations, local authorities, Healthwatch and voluntary and community sector groups to achieve a joint vision of ‘working with you to make Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent the healthiest places to live and work’.

Carers' Strategy Engagement

Every day, thousands of people across the county provide unpaid care for someone who matters to them.

Staffordshire County Council and the NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups in Staffordshire have put together a draft strategy for carers, which sets out our priorities. We would like to hear from carers and professionals what they think of the proposed strategy, and if there is anything else we need to consider.
