Your Local NHS Needs You

In March this year we worked with patients, the public and the community and voluntary sector to look at how we can better involve them in making decisions about local health services. We heard some really good examples of engagement and involvement and how these had made a difference.

Practise safe sex during Freshers’ Week

Doctors at Cannock Chase Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), South East Staffordshire and Seisdon Peninsula CCG and Stafford and Surrounds CCG are advising students to be aware of the risks associated with sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and how to avoid them. In 2015, there were more than 435,000 STI diagnoses in England and there is still a great deal of confusion about how people can catch STIs.
