Older People & Long Term Conditions
Healthwatch Staffordshire is currently working on a project regarding access to Community Services, focusing on the Lichfield area.
They would like to invite Lichfield residents to complete a survey regarding their experiences.
The deadline for completion of the surveys is 26th February 2016.
The February edition of the North Staffordshire Clinical Commissioning Group's Member Newsletter is out! You can read it online here.
This includes details of a Primary Care Engagement which welcomes feedback from patients:-
'As you may be aware the Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire CCGs are currently developing our Northern Staffordshire Primary Care Strategy.
Following the sad closure of Staffordshire Moorlands Blind and Partially Sighted Social Club donations from left over monies were made to local charities which had helped them.
Support Staffordshire’s Staffordshire Moorlands Community Transport scheme was delighted to receive a cheque for £800. The group stated ‘We have been so pleased with your volunteer drivers who have gone the extra mile (excuse the pun!) to be helpful to us and our members’.
The aim of this event is to work towards the integration of voluntary organisation with the statutory services across Tamworth in order to provide a greater focus on preventative services to enhance the health and wellbeing of the local population.
Support Staffordshire are involved in a number of projects both countywide and in individual districts:
- Community & Voluntary Transport
- Connecting Communities (C2)
- Get Together Groups
