Neil Carr, Chief Executive, said “I am delighted that MPFT has been awarded this interim contract. We are committed to working with all partners to ensure a safe and efficient transfer.
"Given the contract is only for 12 months, we will be making few changes to the way these service are delivered which means patients should experience little, or no, disruption.
"As the provider of social care and mental health services in East Staffordshire, we are committed to delivering a single joined up service, reducing confusion and duplication.
"We look forward to supporting the people of East Staffordshire to remain healthy, well and as independent as possible for as long as possible.”
