At UHNM we work with partners across Staffordshire and Shropshire to provide care for you. Our key partners are other NHS and non NHS organisations that help UHNM support people who come to our hospital. They include the following:
Mental Health Trusts
- North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare
- South Staffordshire and Shropshire NHS Trust
CCGs (Clinical Commissioning Groups)
'CCGs' (Clinical Commissioning Groups) were created following the Health and Social Care Act 2012, which saw the replacing of primary care trusts from April 2013. CCGs are clinically-led, statutory NHS bodies responsible for the planning and commissioning of health care services for their local area.
In our area, they include:
•NHS North Staffordshire
•NHS Cannock Chase
•NHS East Staffordshire
•NHS Stafford and Surrounds
•NHS South East Staffordshire and Seisdon Peninsular
The local authorities for this area are Stoke on Trent Council and Staffordshire County Council.
As an NHS trust, we are regulated by NHS Improvement, which oversees our organisation and provides us with guidance and support.
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England.
