The final recommendations of experts brought in to examine services at Mid Staffs NHS Foundation Trust have delivered their final report on its future. They include some changes to their initial draft.
A maternity unit will be set up at Stafford, while there will be an upgraded child assessment unit staffed by specially trained clinicians.
Seriously ill youngsters will still go to specialist centres.
Cannock Chase Hospital will be used by recovering patients transferred from specialist hospitals.
Money will be spent on upgrading services at separate hospitals in Stoke, Wolverhampton and Walsall.
Stafford would be run by the University Hospital of North Staffordshire, and Cannock taken on by the Royal Wolverhampton.
Health watchdog Monitor and the Health Secretary now need to approve the plans and any changes would happen over three years.
