Mid Staffordshire NHS Trust: 'People should use services as normal'

We are very much open for business as usual at both Stafford and Cannock Chase Hospitals and all patients should continue to attend their appointments as usual.

We are encouraging local people to use our services as they normally would.

No changes will begin to be made until post the consultation period and after the Secretary of State for Health has made his decision about the future of the trust much later this year.

– Maggie Oldham, chief executive at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust
