Notice of CCG closure

From 1 July 2022 please visit our new ICB website 

On 1 July 2022, the six Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent closed down and the functions of the CCGs transferred to a new NHS organisation, known as an integrated care board. The new organisation is responsible for NHS spend and the day-to-day running of the NHS in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.

Therefore, Stoke CCG no longer exists and the responsibilities of the CCG, along with the other CCGs in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent, have transferred to the new NHS Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Integrated Care Board (ICB).

These changes have taken place under the new Health and Care Act 2022, which amongst other things aims to tackle health inequalities and create safer, more joined-up services that will put the health and care system on a more sustainable footing. There are no changes to how local residents access NHS frontline services in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent as part of these changes.

From 1 July 2022 if you visit this website, you will be re-directed to the new ICB website.

The Integrated Care System (ICB) Board

on .

The Integrated Care System (ICB) Board will be responsible for commissioning (buying) and monitoring NHS services in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent from the 1 July 2022. It will take on responsibility for pharmacy, dental and optometry (eye) services from April 2023.

The new ICB will replace the six clinical commissioning groups in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent. This follows Royal Assent of the Health and Care Act (2022). There will be 42 Integrated Care Systems in England, which include NHS Integrated Care Boards, set up on a statutory basis.

We are working hard to prepare for this transition, including recruiting to the new Integrated Care Board - Chaired by Prem Singh and led by Peter Axon, the interim Chief Executive Officer.

All Integrated Care Boards are required to have a constitution, which details our approach to fulfilling our statutory duties. You can read our Constitution, which has been assured by NHS England, here .
