Shaping Autism Services in Southern Staffordshire

Wed 22 May 2019

The current contract for Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) services in South Staffordshire is due to come to an end.  In order to comply with Government Regulations around NHS contracts and Procurement, the Clinical Commissioning groups (CCGs -the NHS Organisations responsible for designing services) in this area must award a new contract to provide the service using a tendering process and invite potential providers to apply.

The CCGs in Cannock Chase CCG, East Staffordshire CCG, South East Staffordshire and Seisdon Peninsula CCG and Stafford and Surrounds CCG want to engage with patients, parents and carers that access ASC services to ensure you have the opportunity to play an active role in shaping what the future service might look like. We want to make sure that patients and their families/ carers are receiving the right, high quality services that they need.

Your feedback on what is important to you and what support would help you and your child to live well with autism is essential and will make a difference to the future service provided in South Staffordshire.

An online survey has been developed and you can give your feedback anonymously using the link: https://nhs.researchfeedback.net/s.asp?k=155792473434

We are also holding a series of listening events to hear from users of existing services and to make sure you have your say on the future of autism services in South Staffordshire. We have a number of dates already arranged, but would really like to expand this to further groups who want to play a part in making sure that our service meets the needs of those that use it.

Therefore, we are asking that, if you feel that you would like us to attend your group, please contact the CCG with the date, time and venue and a very brief description of your group on 01785 854482.

Thank you very much for your contribution.
