An independent case review report has been published today into the death of three-year-old Jonnie Meek.

Jonnie had the rare genetic condition De Grouchy Syndrome and had to be fed through a tube in his stomach.  He died on 11 August 2014 during a planned admission to the former Stafford Hospital, which was part of the former Mid Staffordshire NHS Trust.

Medicines Waste Campaign

Every year £1.5million worth of medicines are being wasted locally – money that could have paid for other treatments or services.

There is no such thing as a free prescription. Even if you don't pay for your prescriptions there is still a cost to the NHS.

Cannock Chase Clinical Commissioning Group has launched a public awareness campaign to advise people of what they can do to help reduce medicines waste.

It is everyone's NHS, so let's use it wisely.

Choose well - Right Treatment, Right Place, Right Time

Do you know where to take your loved ones when they need medical help?

Cannock Chase Clinical Commissioning Group is supporting a national campaign to ensure people know where to go for medical help when they need it.

Too many people are turning up at A&E because they simply do not know where else to go for treatment or what other services are available.

The Choose Well campaign, which is being promoted at GP Practices and community venues across the area, focuses on getting people the right treatment in the right place at the right time.
