Health regulator Monitor's plan will be subject to a public consultation and services at the hospitals in Stafford and Cannock will continue to run as normal until a final decision is reached.
It is important that people in Mid Staffordshire know that they can still access services as usual at Stafford and Cannock hospitals while the trust special administration process is ongoing.
We have taken this decision to make sure that patients in the Mid Staffordshire area have the services they need in the future.
It is now the role of the trust special administrators to work with the local community to decide the best way of delivering these services.
