There are lots of challenges to our health and social care system and a Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) is being developed to address these. If you live or work locally, Conversation Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent is your chance to take part in an open discussion about your health services and the way they are delivered.
We want to make sure that patients and the public are at the heart of everything we do in the planning, development and delivery of local health services.
