The CCGs held their Annual General Meeting (AGM) as a meeting in common on 18 July 2017 at the Bet 365 Stadium, Stoke-on-Trent.
Over 150 people attended the AGM in which the CCGs outlined some of the achievements of the last 12 months and discussed priorities for the year ahead. There was also an opportunity to answer questions about the forthcoming consultation on community hospitals.
Some of the achievements included:
- Dementia diagnosis rate in Stoke-on-Trent is now 83% and 72% in North Staffordshire compared to a national average of 68%
- The under-age conception rate for girls aged under 18 in Stoke-on-Trent has fallen from 70 in 1,000 10 years ago to 28 in 1,000 now
- Fewer patients in North Staffordshire(38 per 10,000 adults) and Stoke-on-Trent (42 per 10,000) are admitted to hospital with heart problems -both well below the national average of 53 per 10,000
- Both CCGs rated as top performing for diabetes

Community Conversation on Health Technology
There were 18 stands displaying a variety of technology, as well as representation from both our local Healthwatch partners.
Stands included solutions for helping people to maintain their independence and manage their own health conditions, innovative technology being used to improve treatments and examples of how the public and patients are getting involved in all of this.
We would like to thank all the organisations and groups who had a stand for attending and for helping to make this event a success.
