Stakeholder update from Urgent and Emergency Care transformation programme

Update from Together We’re Better Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent:

There is still time to tell us about your experiences of urgent and emergency care in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.

The current online survey looking at these services, which most people use at some time, ends at midnight on Sunday, October 31.

The feedback from the survey, as well as focused meetings and online events, will help inform the development of new urgent treatment centres in the county. It is one part of a bigger piece of work to ensure health and care services meet the needs of local people now, and in the future, and make the best use of the resources available.

The aim is to create a network of urgent and emergency care services that meet the needs of local people, are consistent and easier to understand. This is a national mandate across England, but we want to make sure that we are designing the services based on the needs of people across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.

We’ve already received a wealth of information that is helping us to develop proposals for future services and we want to thank everyone who has taken part so far. However, we want to encourage more people to take part at this early stage.

The comments we get from this phase of involvement will be analysed and help clinicians and managers to develop proposals for future services. No decisions have yet been taken, as more work is needed to design our local approach. This is likely to take many months, as we want to get this right and we will seek to involve people before any final decisions are taken.

More information and the survey can be found online with the survey closing at midnight on 31 October 2021. If you need any help in completing the survey, you can phone 0333 150 2155.
