Shaping Autism Services in Southern Staffordshire

The current contract for Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) services in southern Staffordshire is due to come to an end. In order to comply with the law around NHS contracts, the CCGs in the area must award a new contract to provide the service and invite potential providers to apply.

The CCGs in Cannock Chase, East Staffordshire, South East Staffordshire and Seisdon Peninsula and Stafford and Surrounds engaged with the public to shape the future service. This was ensure that with the new contract patients and their families receive the right, high quality services that they need and to learn from your experience of the current services.

The feedback on what is important to you and what support would help you and your child to live well with autism is key and will make a difference to the future service in southern Staffordshire. The online survey was available to the public up until Sunday 30 June and we also held a series of listening events to hear from users of existing services, including engagement events in Rugeley, Stafford, Perton, Tamworth, Burton and Uttoxeter.

The feedback from these events and the online survey is currently being collated and documented in order to build a picture of what the future services should look like for those patients who access the Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) services in southern Staffordshire.
