A team offering early intervention for children and young people with anxiety or low mood has been recognised for exceptional partnership working.

The Wellbeing Practitioners are a partnership of South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and the Youth Emotional Support Service (YESS) and provide evidence based interventions in the Staffordshire community, including at local schools.

The NHS and social care in Staffordshire have launched its 'What's Your Emergency?' winter campaign today, Friday 1 December 2017. For the next six weeks you'll hear from a variety of frontline staff from across the NHS. They'll be giving a combination of advice about different illness and conditions, how you can be prepared for winter, what you can do for others and the services that are on offer.

Adults in Staffordshire with mental health conditions needing social care support and assessments are currently supported by two organisations - South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (SSSFT) and North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare Trust (NSCHT).

Staffordshire County Council is legally responsible for making sure social care for adults with mental health conditions is available to people across Staffordshire. In May 2009 the County Council agreed that SSSFT and NSCHT would provide these functions on its behalf through a formal process called a 'Section 75 Partnership Agreement.'

The County Council is now looking to implement a new 'Section 75 Partnership Agreement' with just one provider of adult social care mental health services across Staffordshire from 2018 - SSSFT - believing this to be the best approach for the future.
