The six Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are currently working in conjunction with the Staffordshire’s Community Children’s Nursing Team (CCNT) to engage with their patients.
Historically, the CCNT service specification for the three geographic localities has been different. In the 2019/20 contract, the service development implementation plan identified a need to realign the service equitably across Staffordshire. As a result of proposed service redesign, there is a need to engage with children and their families who use the service and clinicians to explain the proposed changes which specifically includes changing the hours that business-as-usual telephone and visit support will be available across the three localities.
The aim of the engagement is to reassure patients and GPs that the proposed changes to telephone support and visits is minimal and aims to provide a more equitable service across Staffordshire, utilising all available resources to support service users more effectively.
In order to engage with patients, their families, carers and other clinical professionals there is an online survey available to complete until 11:59 on Sunday 14 November 2021.
