Britannia Stadium meeting will signal end of NHS era
THE historic final annual meeting of Staffordshire's three primary care trusts will be staged next week – months before they are abolished under NHS reforms.
After nearly a decade, the primary care trusts (PCTs) will hand their powers to plan and commission services to so-called clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) led by family doctors next Spring.
The boards of the Stoke-on-Trent, North and South Staffordshire trusts have already merged to operate as a cluster which holds its annual meeting at the Britannia Stadium on Wednesday, September 26 between 3.30pm and 6pm.
Among those invited to attend are MPs, representatives from county, district, town and parish councils, key community and voluntary groups and a variety of health professionals from across Staffordshire.
