Cannock Chase Clinical Commissioning Group, South East Staffordshire & Seisdon Peninsula Clinical Commissioning Group, and Stafford & Surrounds Clinical Commissioning Group are reviewing the support that adult patients (over 18s) with type I and type II diabetes receive, whether care is delivered in their GP practice, at local clinics or in hospital.
It’s been a while since I offered a health-related comment piece and in truth I still don’t have a lot of new news. There have been some changes at the health and care transformation team, but still no public, patient or VCSE opportunities to engage; and the Health and Wellbeing Board remains just out of touch. That said, with our new county council role about to kick off, I am hopeful of making some headway in both these key areas of engagement very soon.
Please find below details of the Healthwatch Staffordshire 'Design a poster' competition. The competition is designed to encourage more young people to get involved in Healthwatch and give their views on the health and social care services young people receive. We are looking for a poster design to include a logo and a catchy strapline to appeal to young people.
