Patients and members of the public are being urged to have their say on the re-design and future procurement of a provider to deliver GP Out-of-hours and Front of House services in Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire. North Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) – the organisations responsible for buying healthcare services in the area – are launching a programme of work, including extensive patient and public engagement, around the two services, both of which are currently provided by Staffordshire Doctors Urgent Care (SDUC). Dr Steve Fawcett, Clinical Director at Stoke-on-Trent CCG, said: “Our current Out-of-hours service provides care from 6.30pm to 8.00am on weekdays and all day at weekends and on bank holidays. It is integrated with other local healthcare services and offers a high-quality experience to the patients who use it. "We have had a pilot ‘Front of House’ service over the last 10 months," said Dr Fawcett. "This GP-led service operates as the first point of contact for patients who go to A&E at The Royal Stoke University Hospital (RSUH), making sure any ‘walk-in’ patients who could be cared for by a GP are taken straight to the Urgent Care Centre. "This is within the A&E and run by GPs and ensures patients get the care they need in a timely and efficient manner. "We are now looking to implement it on a more permanent basis and due to potential overlap of this scheme with the Out-of-hours service, we've decided to align the two and procure them together," said Dr Fawcett. Paul Jolley, Stoke-on-Trent CCG’s Head of Acute Services, said: “We are calling on patients and the public in the area to help us in the forthcoming programme of work which will oversee the design of the new model for Out-of-hours and Front of House, followed by the procurement of a suitable provider and implementation of the new joined-up service. “We really want to put something in place that does exactly what local people need it to,” said Mr Jolley. “That means we need people to get in touch and tell us what they think of our plans and give us their views on how they think that service should look in the future. “We have organised three events in September, where patients and members of the public will be able to attend and take part in table top discussions and we will also be out and about talking to patients and the public at local markets in the coming months." “In addition, we've developed a very short online survey so you can feed back to us about your experiences of the current service, what’s important to you in a GP Out-of-hours service and how you would like to see the new service provided," he added. Paper copies of this survey will be made available at various locations including GP Practices and the SDUC's base at Campbell Road in Stoke-on-Trent.

GP Surgery Easter Opening Hours Patients in North Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent will be able to visit their GPs over the long Easter weekend thanks to a scheme funded by both CCGs which began before Christmas. The scheme, supported by Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire Clinical Commissioning Groups and NHS England, ran through the winter months and is continuing due to the support it has provided to patients and other NHS services in the area since it launched. Over Easter, some practices will even be opening their doors on Good Friday and Easter Monday to ensure patients in North Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent can get appointments when they need them. Dr Steve Fawcett, a GP at Moorcroft Medical Centre and also a clinical director at Stoke-on-Trent CCG, said: “The scheme offers the best of both worlds for patients in the area, giving them somewhere to go with urgent healthcare problems over the weekend where they can get the care they need quickly and efficiently, and in many case, avoiding an unnecessary trip to hospital. “At the same time, it will support local hospitals, where A&E departments come under pressures over the winter months.” Dr Emma Sutton, Clinical Director for Primary Care, at North Staffordshire CCG, said: “Patients who find themselves in need of urgent care on a Saturday, should call their GP surgery to find out if they are taking part in the scheme and whether they have any appointments available. “Alternatively, they can call Midway Medical Centre in Newcastle and Hanley Health and Wellbeing Centre, with both welcoming patients, including those registered at other surgeries, on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday over the Easter Weekend as part of the scheme.” Patient who find themselves in need of urgent care on a Saturday are advised to call their GP surgery to find out if it is participating in the Saturday opening hours scheme and whether there are appointments available.
