Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust insists it is "business as usual" after administrators announced it should be dissolved and one of its hospitals stripped of key services.
The trust says all services, including those for children and maternity, will continue during the public consultation period.
The trust, which runs Stafford Hospital and Cannock Chase Hospital, went into administration in April after a report found it was not "clinically or financially sustainable."
Trust Special Administrators (TSAs) have now recommended a major shake-up, saying the trust earns around £150m a year but costs about £170m to run.
The consultation on their recommendations starts on August 6 and is running until October 1.
