NHS services to be debated
DELAYS for A&E treatment, pressure on hospital services for people with eye problems, and changes in mental health care will all be discussed in public tomorrow by GPs running the NHS in Stoke-on-Trent.
The items are on the agenda at the monthly board meeting of the city's Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) at Herbert Minton Building, in, Stoke, starting at 1.3pm.
The doctors will also be asked to ratify a new system of treating people with foot problems by giving them a choice of eight NHS or private chiropodists to be referred to.
Similar options have already been rubber-stamped for those with hearing problems who can now visit High Street chains, with treatment paid by the NHS.

The CCG will hear how delays are starting to build up again in A&E at the University Hospital of North Staffordshire which was fined millions of pounds earlier this year for keeping patients waiting too long.
A report will also be given of a review carried out on learning disabilities services across Staffordshire. It was ordered in response to the exposure of sickening abuse of patients in the Winterbourne View home, Bristol.
Members of the public will be allowed by chairman Dr Prasad Rao to ask questions of the doctors on any item on the agenda.
