Neil Carr OBE, Chief Executive of South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (SSSFT) and Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent Partnership NHS Trust (SSOTP), will officially open a new Wellbeing Centre at Morston House in Newcastle-under-Lyme on Thursday 22 March 2018.

The North Staffordshire Wellbeing Service provides help for any type of emotional problem, or physical symptoms that cause emotional distress. This is an integrated service where workers from Community Health and Social Care Teams such as Diabetes and Respiratory Nurses work alongside Wellbeing Practitioners/Therapists from the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Service (IAPT).

The new Wellbeing Centre is one of the first examples of the wraparound patient-centred care that is being achieved through the closer working relationship between SSSFT and SSOTP. The two trusts are proposing to merge later in the year.

It’s Nutrition and Hydration Week this week and staff at South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (SSSFT) have been rising to the global challenge.

The national nutrition and hydration campaign aims to promote good nutritional care and share good nutrition and hydration practices.

The team at SSSFT, including dietitians, occupational therapists, nursing staff and catering colleagues will be running a number of events through the week in support of healthy eating and awareness raising. These include smoothie sessions, multi-cultural food tastings, fruit themed art and making overnight oat jars.

During the week South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (SSSFT) will be joining employers and apprentices from across England to celebrate the success of apprenticeships whilst encouraging even more people to choose apprenticeships as a pathway to a great career.

Staff at South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (SSSFT) are once again reporting high levels of satisfaction with their work at the Trust.

Results from this year’s NHS National Staff Opinion Survey show SSSFT is one of the top performing mental health and learning disability trusts in the country when it comes to motivating and engaging its staff. The overall score for staff engagement at the Trust is 3.88 out of 5 which puts SSSFT in the top ten nationally and in the top four for mental health and learning disability trusts.

The NHS Staff Survey helps NHS organisations identify improvements and successes, and provides staff with a voice to express how they feel about their roles, the organisation, and the quality of care they provide. 63% of SSSFT staff contributed to the survey, only three other trusts in the country had a higher response rate.
