As we work towards the new Integrated Care System (ICS) this is a real opportunity for us to involve clinical and care professionals in every level of decision making.
We are engaging with clinical and care professionals across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent to shape plans for a local distributed clinical and professional leadership approach.
We want to seek views from a wide range of clinicians and care professionals to help inform this framework and model and to embed these new principles into our culture going forward. There will be two opportunities to have your say at this stage via an online survey and a virtual workshop.
Please note the virtual workshop has already taken place and the online survey has now closed.
This is building on ongoing conversations that have been had at the Health and Care Senate that represents clinicians and professionals at a system level.
Feedback will be reviewed by the Health and Care Senate as we work towards developing plans for a local approach to clinical and professional leadership in the future.
National guidance has been issued to inform the development of distributed clinical and care professional leadership across integrated care systems (ICSs).

Our first multi-organisation and multi-professional networking event for clinicians and care professionals across the Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent system took place on Wednesday 16 February 2022.
This provided an opportunity to network with other professionals across the system, as well as share their views on the emerging local model and framework for clinical and care professional leadership.
We also asked clinicians and care professionals to take part in a survey to share their views. Please note that the survey closed on midnight on Sunday 20 February 2022.
