As December draws that little bit closer so does the Christmas cheer, and with all the excitement the more everyday things get lost or forgotten. So, before the inevitable coughs, colds and flu really get a grip, Cannock and Rugeley GPs are urging parents of children between the ages of two and seven to make sure their little ones have their flu nasal vaccination as soon as possible to ensure they are protected for the winter months.
NHS and social care organisations across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent today agreed to work together to improve health and care services for their patients.
They will come together as a Commissioning Congress to identify and drive delivery of a collective transformation programme, to ensure citizens in Staffordshire and Stoke-on Trent have high quality, sustainable services going into the future. These services will work with people to help them take control of their health and promote self-care and prevention, as this is what local people tell us they want.
