Notice of CCG closure

From 1 July 2022 please visit our new ICB website https://staffsstoke.icb.nhs.uk/ 

On 1 July 2022, the six Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent closed down and the functions of the CCGs transferred to a new NHS organisation, known as an integrated care board. The new organisation is responsible for NHS spend and the day-to-day running of the NHS in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.

Therefore, Stoke CCG no longer exists and the responsibilities of the CCG, along with the other CCGs in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent, have transferred to the new NHS Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Integrated Care Board (ICB).

These changes have taken place under the new Health and Care Act 2022, which amongst other things aims to tackle health inequalities and create safer, more joined-up services that will put the health and care system on a more sustainable footing. There are no changes to how local residents access NHS frontline services in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent as part of these changes.

From 1 July 2022 if you visit this website, you will be re-directed to the new ICB website.

The Stoke-on-Trent City Council ticket to ride which will help tackle health inequality

on .

 

A free taxi shuttle service is being offered to Stoke-on-Trent residents who want to have the Covid-19 vaccination, but may have found it hard to get to a vaccination centre.

The new service will provide residents with a return trip from their homes direct to the city-wide vaccination programme.

The shuttle service is for residents living in the following areas of the city where the uptake of the Covid-19 vaccine to date has been lower:

  • Hanley & Etruria
  • Shelton & Joiners Square
  • Longport & Burslem Park
  • Florence (Normacot)
  • Tunstall
  • Cobridge & Central Forest Park
  • Bentilee & Ubberley
  • Boothen & Penkhull
  • Meir North

The move, which is part of Stoke-on-Trent City Council’s ongoing approach to reducing health inequality, aims to tackle any transport barriers that may stop people from taking up the vaccine.

The shuttle service begins today and will operate into the new year. The shuttle taxis can be booked by calling 01782 234234.
